Implementing Food Waste Co-digestion at Wastewater Treatment Plants: Planning and Operations

The Santa Ana River Basin Section (SARBS) Professional Development Committee (PDC) partnering with San Francisco Bay Section (SFBS) presents a series of online webinars on the implementation of food waste co-digestion at wastewater treatment plants. This webinar series provides a training opportunity for wastewater treatment professionals to learn about technical considerations associated with the implementation of food waste co‐digestion at municipal resource recovery facilities. Considering recent SB 1383 regulation adoption, publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) are engaging in planning efforts, or already practicing some level of food waste co‐digestion, at the facilities where anaerobic digestion is used for sludge stabilization. The target topics to be covered during this webinar series are: planning for the impact of co-digestion on the liquid and solids treatment processes at POTWs, food waste receiving facilities and protocols to accept feedstocks, pretreatment alternatives for source separated organics pretreatment, effects of co‐digestion on plant influent loadings, secondary treatment process capacity, anaerobic digestion processes, and biosolids production and disposal.
