Comparison of MBT plants with and without upstream Anaerobic Digestion (AD) in terms of moisture Management and achievement of landfill disposal criteria

In waste industry the trend has developed to treat municipal solid waste (MSW) within an anaerobic digestion process. For this purpose MBT plants with an upstream AD plant were built. In the context of plant monitoring and trials one MBT with AD and one MBT without AD were examined and compared to determine the impact of the AD process. For this, the plant operation, especially the moisture management, the compliance of the landfill criteria and also the economic efficiency of the MBT were investigated.

The operation of anaerobic digestion plants (AD plants) became very popular in the last decades, especially in the frame of agricultural treatment of renewable resources, which is a product with constant quality. This trend has also developed within the waste industry to treat municipal solid waste (MSW) within an anaerobic digestion process. The waste composition of MSW can be quite various. For this anaerobic treatment MBT plants were built with an upstream AD process. For determining the impact of the AD plant onto the plant operation and also the economic efficiency of the MBT plant, one MBT plant with and one MBT plant without upstream AD were evaluated and compared.
