30 p, 654.2 KB Modelling the aerobic degradation of organic wastes based on slowly and rapidly degradable fractions / Ponsá Salas, Sergio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Puyuelo Sánchez, Belén (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Gea Leiva, Teresa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Sánchez Ferrer, Antoni (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental)
Several organic wastes of major production in the world (municipal solid wastes, wastewater sludge, manures and bulking agents) and some already treated organic wastes have been investigated to determine the partition among the several fractions that compose them and their kinetics of biodegradation. [...]

34 p, 2.8 MB Anaerobic co-digestion of the organic fraction of municipal solid waste with several pure organic co-substrates / Ponsá Salas, Sergio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química) ; Gea Leiva, Teresa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Sánchez Ferrer, Antoni (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental)
A strategy to improve the operation of working anaerobic digesters treating the organic fraction of municipal solid wastes (OFMSW) to increase the biogas production is studied. It consists of increasing the organic loading rate of the digesters by adding extra organic matter from some problematic organic wastes. [...]

28 p, 1.0 MB Different indices to express biodegradability in organic solid wastes / Ponsá Salas, Sergio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Gea Leiva, Teresa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental) ; Sánchez Ferrer, Antoni (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental)
Respiration indices are suggested in literature as the most suitable stability determination and are proposed as a biodegradability measure in this work. An improved dynamic respiration index methodology is described in this work. [...]

5 p, 23.3 KB Test methods to aid in the evaluation of the diversion of biodegradable municipal waste (BMW) from landfill / Sánchez Ferrer, Antoni (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Enginyeria Química, Biològica i Ambiental)
This discussion explores one crucial point about the use of biodegradability indicators to monitor biological processes in organic solid waste treatment plants. Today, some different measures are being used for the determination of biodegradable organic matter and most of them are based on respiration indices (oxygen consumption or carbon dioxide production under aerobic conditions) or biogas production tests (under strict anaerobic conditions). [...]
