Anaerobic Digestion. Instructor's Guide. Biological Treatment Process Control.
Carnegie, John W., Ed.
This instructor's guide contains materials needed to teach a four-lesson unit on anaerobic digestion control. These materials include: (1) unit overview; (2) lesson plans; (3) lecture outlines; (4) student worksheets for each lesson (with answers); and (5) two copies of a final quiz (with and without answers). Lesson 1 is a review of the theory of anaerobic digestion. Topics covered include the nature of raw sludge, purposes of anaerobic digestion, the biological process, and the results of digestion. Lesson 2 covers classification of digesters and system components. Classification on the basis of function and structure is discussed. The components of the mixing, heating, and gas system are also covered. Lesson 3 deals with process control. The factors which affect operation, control parameters, and sampling and testing are addressed. Lesson 4 is on mathematics calculations relating to process control. Lessons 1, 2, and 3 are supported by a set of 35mm slides (which are indicated in the lecture outlines for these lessons). (JN)
