Multi-AD is a high performance MULTIphase Anaerobic Digester tailor-made for treating wastewater generated in Food and Drink SMEs. It is fully sensorised, being able to self-regulate basic operational parameters (T, flow…) for its auto-operation depending on the kind of wastewater characteristics it needs to treat. It will generate 80% methane-rich biogas that be partially used -50%- for its operation, and partially used -50%- for other energy-demanding industrial tasks (e.g. heating, at the industry choice), with average economic savings of 15,000€/year (when treating 100 m3/d) and 11% less CO2 emissions.
The Multi-AD project will contribute to ensure the safe and efficient use of water resources, to have a resource-efficient industrial sector in the whole EU, and ultimately to foster the use of renewable energy in industry.
