Anaerobic lagoons (ALs) are a common technology enabling low cost wastewater treatment and the recovery of energy from waste. The project aims to improve fundamental understanding of the mechanisms that govern performance of ALs, particularly the characteristics and behaviour of active solids in these complex, non-steady state processes. This will allow for development of informed management strategies for solids inventory in ALs, improving overall performance and reducing operational costs.
