Using food waste to generate energy at the wastewater treatment plants allows the plant to become energy neutral and potentially, net energy positive. This study assessed the impact of food waste addition to the liquids treatment processes in case where food waste cannot be added directly to the anaerobic digesters.
Modeling food waste through liquids treatment with BioWin and appropriate assumptions would be explained.
The impact of food waste on liquids treatment operation will be discussed including impact of primary and waste activated sludge production.
