Life-ANADRY has joined the cluster of Biorefine

Biorefine , wastewater , Innovation , cluster , anaerobic digestion , irrigation , resource recovery , circular economy

The Biorefine Cluster Europe interconnects projects and people within the domain of biobased resource recovery, striving to contribute to a more sustainable resource management. 

The competence focus lies within the biorefinery sector: the refinement of chemicals, materials, energy and products from biobased waste streams. It can be subdivided in four categories: 

  • Biobased (waste)streams as an input for the circular economy
  • Bioprocesses
  • Sustainable bio-energy production in its various shapes and forms 
  • Resource Recovery: extracting minerals, chemicals, water and materials from biomass

Life-ANADRY project has joined the cluster as an active project, you may check our profile here.[...]

The works of the Alguazas water treatment plant have been completed and will provide 1,200 cubic hectometres of reclaimed water to the irrigators in the region which is an area of ​​1,521 hectares.

The general director of Water, Sebastián Delgado, accompanied by members of the municipal corporation of Alguazas, visited the facility and reported that "this volume of water is in an excellent quality, the plant, built in 2014 and with capacity to serve a population of 162,000 inhabitants, already has tertiary treatment. "

The actions in this purifying station, in which 200,000 euros have been invested, have allowed to increase its energy efficiency. The Ministry of Water, Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries will allocate 2 million euros until 2019 in actions in 20 municipalities "with the aim of saving energy costs in the operation of each plant, by installing photovoltaic energy."

In Alguazas WWTP, Life-Anadry project is developed as an alternative for the management and treatment of sludge  which is co-financed by the European Union within the Life program.

The technology is based on a pre-industrial scale design composed of a 20 cubic meter cylindrical reactor with capacity to treat up to three tons per day of sewage sludge. During the project, different temperature conditions (mesophilic and thermophilic) are studied and the performance in terms of stabilization, sanitation and biogas production is being currently determined.

From 23rd -25th May 2018, Sludge Management in Circular Economy (SMICE2018)  conference took place in Rome, Italy. SMICE2018 is part of the IWA Specialist Group on Sludge Management (SGSM) conference series, conceived as an international forum discussing state-of-art, practical applications and problems around sewage sludge. Sewage sludge management problems are common all over the world and best solutions, according to affordable costs, have to be suited to specific territorial contexts. Europe is now world promoter for the transition from the linear to the circular economy. Six new directives are about to be approved by the European Parliament and this will drive Member States to the adoption of new strategies and politics to maximize waste recycling. 

Life-ANADRY was presented at the event by DAM to show the benefits of the dry anaerobic digestion of sewage sludge as a valuable alternative to conventional process.[...]

Life-ANADRY project consortium held a technical meeting on 13th April 2018 in Alguazas, Murcia in order to discuss the progress of the project and its planned activities for the coming months. The meeting included a visit to the LIFE-ANADRY prototype and was joined by Patricia Serrano representing Neemo.

During the meeting, partners discussed the main results obtained so far and the most relevant conclusions of the operation and monitoring of the prototype.  The prototype is now performing under mesophilic conditions where results look very promising.  The consortium also showed the most relevant results about the dissemination plan and the networking activities carried out so far. Finally, discussions on the next actions concluded the meeting together with the technical visit.

LIFE-ANADRY Technical Meeting and Monitoring Visit 2018

Organised by the project coordinator Depuración Aguas del Mediterraneo S.L. (DAM), Life-ANADRY project consortium will hold a technical meeting on 13th April 2018 in Alguazas, Murcia in order to discuss the progress of the project and its planned activities for the coming months. The meeting will also include a visit to the LIFE-ANADRY prototype and joined by Patricia Serrano representing Neemo.

During the meeting, partners will discuss the main results obtained so far and the most relevant conclusions of the operation and monitoring of the prototype. Also, the consortium will show the most relevant results about the dissemination plan and the networking activities carried out so far.

LIFE-ANADRY partners are collaborating to demonstrate the technical and economic feasibility of the correct environmental management of sludge in medium to small sized wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) in order to transfer the outcomes obtained to other areas with similar problems, at national and international levels.

During the development of the project, several technical actions have been conducted: design and construction of the prototype, start-up of the prototype and the study under thermophilic conditions. Now, the project is finalising the implementation of prototype under mesophilic conditions, which will be followed by technical and economic feasibility studies and transferability actions which are expected to end next year, February 2019.[...]

The Beginning of the Final Phases of Life-ANADRY Project

During the development of Life-ANADRY project, several technical actions have been conducted: design and construction of the prototype, start-up of the prototype and the study under thermophilic conditions. Now, the project begins its final phases (implementation of mesophilic conditions, technical and economic feasibility studies and transferbility) which are expected to end next year, February 2019.

So far, the results obtained under the thermophilic conditions (55°C) are promising. It has been proved that it is possible to treat dehydrated sludge with a percentage of approximately 15% of dry matter while obtaining a digestate completely sanitized in terms of E.coli and Salmonella. In addition, generating biogas, which can be usable as energy source, was achieved. However, it has been found that the main challenge when working on thermophilic conditions is the high concentration of ammonium (NH4) into the digester, which causes an increase in the concentration of free ammonia (NH3) due to the working conditions.

Currently, the prototype is operating in mesophilic conditions. During this period, the influence of the organic load on the yield of the process, in terms of biogas production, stabilization and hygienization of the obtained sludge will be studied.

LIFE-ANADRY project aims to reduce the environmental impacts by reducing CO2 emissions, increasing sludge stability, improving sludge quality and sanitation, and promoting its use as a safe fertilizer.
