Anaerobic Hybrid Digesters are a combination of Upflow Filter Digester (UFF) and Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB). With over 90% reduction in Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) and over 70% reduction in the Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) and lesser space requirement in comparison to other available technologies, it is a good treatment option available for the clients who face stringent effluent discharge regulations.
Further, as the growth of the fixed film of biomass occurs on the plastic media, the need or requirement to develop and maintain granular sludge reduces by a significant margin. This is a significant advantage that is suggested during feasibility analysis when Anaerobic Hybrid Digesters are compared with other anaerobic reactors which are available in the market.
Moreover, biogas which is generated from the process can be used to generate electricity. This reduces the fuel demand to generate the plant, or, to reduce the amount of electricity bought from public or private organizations.
