In wastewater treatment, anaerobic digesters help to manage waste and produce renewable energy. The anaerobic digestion wastewater treatment process involves a series of processes where wastewater biosolids are broken down by bacteria in the absence of oxygen. Once the bacteria consumes the suspended particles, all solid matter is then removed before the digesters break down the waste and create digester gas (carbon dioxide and methane). The digester gas can then be converted to renewable energy to fuel onsite boilers, generate heat or electricity, and more.
