            • Digestion 

            • Methane production

Related: Case Study: Biosolids/Headworks

            • Enhanced dewatering

How it works:           

  • Increases pH and buffering alkalinity
  • Stabilizes and enhances volatile acid and methane generation

  • Increased digester pH and alkalinity
  • Higher alkalinity/volatile acid ratio

How to measure:      

  • pH meter
  • Alkalinity titration
  • Volatile acid analysis
  • pH profile across process basins

Results, benefits and savings         

  • Higher digester gas quantity and quality
  • Increased digester load capacity
  • Lower solids disposal costs

Thioguard added to the collection system or sludge digestion process can also help the digestion and dewatering processes at the wastewater treatment plant.

  • Increased biological nutrient removal pH and alkalinity
  • Reduced total phosphorus and nitrogen

How to measure:

  • pH meter
  • Alkalinity titration
  • Phosphorus and nitrogen balance

Results, benefits and savings
Improved phosphorus uptake and condition for phosphorus wasting or recovery through side-stream treatments

Thioguard added at the plant or collection system is the only odor control strategy that can have positive influence on a BNR process.
