Biowaste Treatment

Designed to convert biowaste into methane and valuable byproducts, SUEZ’s Monsal* Advanced Digestion Technologies uses anaerobic digestion to break down matter and create biogas.

Converting Food Waste to Energy

Biowastes include organic food wastes generated from restaurants, supermarkets, commercial facilities, institutions and source separated organic waste collected from residences. The Monsal advanced anaerobic digestion turns biowaste into biogas which can be converted to energy and the remaining solids to a stable fertilizer.

Convert concentrated organic wastewater into high quality effluent and produce energy

Organic material in wastewater can be a source of energy when treated anaerobically. The methane rich biogas produced can be used as a renewable, storable source of supplemental energy for the production of heat or power.

Conventional anaerobic digestion technologies have limitations in their ability to provide quality, reliability, and efficiency.

SUEZ’s AnMBR technology provides improved effluent quality, reliability, and efficiency using SUEZ’s proven ZeeWeed* 500 reinforced hollow fiber membrane integrated into the AnMBR system.

Product Features

  • Methane rich biogas produced can be used as a renewable, storable, source of supplemental energy for the production of heat or power
  • Superior effluent quality and reliability using SUEZ’s ZeeWeed 500 membranes
  • Modular scalable system design, minimizes onsite construction and is ideal for future expansion
  • Retrofit upgrade for existing conventional anaerobic digestion systems
  • No biological oxygen required reducing energy costs for operation
  • 80% Reduction in the amount of waste biological sludge that will require disposal compared to aerobic solutions
  • Higher organic loading rates reduce footprint
  • Process is sealed to the external environment so odor, VOC, and greenhouse gas emission control is much more efficient
  • Leverages SUEZ’s experience and industry leadership in MBR plant design

Turn Waste to Energy with Advanced Anaerobic Digestion

Designed to recycle biosolids and biowaste into methane and valuable byproducts, SUEZ’s advanced digestion technologies (ADT) use bacteria in the absence of oxygen to break down matter to create biogas. The biogas can be combusted or oxidized and used for heating or with a gas engine to produce electricity and heat; it can also be compressed and used as fuel for vehicles with the cake produced, used as a fertilizer.

Product Features

SUEZ's line of sludge processing systems brings advanced anaerobic digestion to municipal biosolids and organic biowaste applications.

  • Optimal energy balance maximizes system yield and performance
  • Mixing equipment achieves >90% active volume in sludge digesters
  • Uses Smart heat exchangers designed for thick sludge
  • Employs cutting-edge pasteurization technology for Class A sludge processing
  • Combine with SUEZ’s Jenbacher equipment to efficiently transform biogas into energy.

Convert Organic Waste to Methane and Other Valuable Byproducts

SUEZ’s line of Monsal* Advanced Digestion Technologies uses anaerobic digestion to break down matter and create biogas. The biogas can be combusted or oxidized and used for heating or with a gas engine to produce electricity and heat. It can also be compressed and used as fuel for vehicles; additional nutrient-rich effluent can be used as fertilizer.

Biowaste Features

SUEZ’s biowaste treatment process optimizes biogas production and provides nutrient rich effluent which can be used as fertilizer. The process includes:

  • RE:Sep* pre-treatment separates packaging, contraries and grit to generate a clean organic slurry
  • Hydrolysis Pasteurization Digestion (HPD) operates anaerobically and promotes the natural formation of volatile fatty acids in the slurry, leading to greater biogas production
  • Advanced Anaerobic Digestion is designed with a hydraulic retention time of 18 to 22 days to improve the conversion of sludge to energy.

Create energy from biowaste and biosolids applications

From mixing systems to heat exchanges to sludge treatment, SUEZ’s digestion products work in concert to provide a holistic solution that takes anaerobic treatment to a new level. SUEZ’s digestion products achieve optimal energy balance to maximize system yield and performance.

Digestion Product Features

SUEZ’s digestion products are designed to work together as one system to help customers achieve increased efficiency and reduced energy costs.

Mixing Systems process >90% of the contents in the sludge digester

  • SGM systems can handle dry solids concentrations up to 10%
  • Jet Mix systems used in the hydrolysis buffer tank to promote the natural formation of volatile fatty acids in the slurry
  • Air Mix systems fully mix the sludge within 2 hours and use low energy of 1.5W/m3 to 2.0W/m3

Heat Exchangers automatically control temperature in the digester or process to +/-1°C

  • Re:Smart provide heating or cooling of temperature ranges covering mesophilic and thermophilic digesters
  • Re:SmartSteam handles heating for mesophilic and thermophilic digesters of over 30% dry solids concentration

Sludge Treatment desludges clarifiers automatically with low energy and low maintenance required

  • Air Lift can desludge both primary and trickling filter sludge
