MSc. Dominik Andreides

Thesis topic:

Biological conversion of energy-rich gases to biomethane and its integration into biogas plants and wastewater treatment plants

Motivation

Recent development in the sewage sludge treatment are heading towards the onset of thermochemical processes and significantly reduction of applying sludge to the soil. Due to the limitation of subsidies for cogeneration of biogas, it is also necessary to look for new solutions at biogas plants to promote sustainable growth and the circular economy. One of the options is to interconnect the technology of anaerobic digestion of sludge and organic waste, and products of thermochemical processes (gasification or pyrolysis). Biogas and syngas can be biologically converted to biomethane, compatible with natural gas and it can be used in the natural gas distribution system or used as a fuel in transport.

Solution

In this PhD topic, we will study biological methods for upgrading biogas to biomethane as an alternative to the already established physico-chemical processes that are energy and economically challenging. The study will focus on the operation of laboratory scale models of anaerobic digestion, operated in mesophilic and thermophilic conditions. A suitable gas (e.g. syngas or hydrogen) with reducing equivalents will be fed into these bioreactors to convert carbon dioxide to methane. The aim is to adapt the mixed anaerobic culture to dosed gases and optimize the technological parameters for full-scale conditions.
