High rate renewable energy production with the Static Granular Bed Reactor (SGBR)

Presented by: Tim Ellis, Iowa State University
An exciting new anaerobic treatment technology, the static granular bed reactor (SGBR), has been developed and
patented at Iowa State University to treat a variety of
wastewaters from municipal, industrial, and agricultural
sources. Due to its unique reactor configuration, the SGBR
allows for more efficient and cost-effective treatment in a
smaller footprint, without the need for expensive
membranes, heat exchangers, mixers, etc. In addition,
treatment occurs in an anaerobic environment at ambient
temperatures, eliminating the need for energy input in the
form of aeration or heat, and in turn, producing methane
as a valuable end-product and renewable energy source.
The simplicity of the SGBR is the main advantage over
conventional anaerobic treatment technologies. This
webinar will detail the unique aspects of the SGBR and the
opportunities that exist for using this technology to not
only treat a variety of waste streams, but to generate a
continuous source of renewable energy.
