Abstract [en]

Agitation power consumption (P) in the anaerobic digestion of biogas plants is a major part of the electric energy consumption. To reduce P by adjusting the rheological properties, in this work, the rheological properties of corn straw slurry were studied systematically with the consideration of the effects of TS, temperature and particle sizes. The P was calculated based on the rheological behaviour of corn straw slurry. The investigation shows that the thermophilic digestion is effective only for the slurry with a relatively high TS. The size-reduction is more effective at higher TS compared to the option of increasing temperature in order to improve the agitation power efficiency, and the value of P can be reduced by up to 48.11 %. Since the size-reduction can also increase the methane yield, the adjustment of particle sizes is a promising option to save P, especially at higher TS.

Abstract [en]

Agitation power consumption (P) in the anaerobic digestion of biogas plants is a major consumer of electric energy. To reduce P by adjusting the rheological properties, in this work, the rheological properties of the corn-straw slurry were studied systematically considering the effects of TS, temperature and particle-size, and P was calculated based on the rheological behavior of the corn-straw slurry. The investigation shows that the corn-straw slurry is a non-Newtonian fluid and exhibit shear-thinning behavior, and the rheological properties can be well described with the power law model. The size-reduction is more effective compared to the option of temperature-increase to improve the agitation power efficiency, and the value of P can be reduced by up to 48.11 %. Since the size-reduction can also increase the methane yield, the reduction of the particle-size is a promising option to save P, especially at relatively high TSs and for the thermophilic AD process.

Abstract [en]

Waste-heat recovery from discharged slurries can improve the net raw biogas production in the bio-methane process in order to meet the demand for a next-generation of anaerobic digestion. In this study, a numerical model of a scraped-surface heat exchanger was proposed with the consideration of the complete and precise rheological behaviour of the slurry of animal manure for the first time for achieving highly efficient waste-heat recovery. The rheological model results were verified with new experimental data measured in this work. Subsequently, the convective heat-transfer coefficient of the scraped-surface heat exchanger was calculated numerically with the proposed numerical model, and the performance was determined. Then, the contributions of waste-heat recovery from the slurry to the biogas production using a general shell-and-tube heat exchanger and the scraped-surface heat exchanger were calculated quantitatively and compared. For the case of scraped-surface heat exchanger, the increase of net raw biogas production can be up to 8.53%, which indicates that there is a great potential to increase the net raw biogas production in the bio-methane process using a scraped-surface heat exchanger with low-cost equipment and a compactible structure.

Abstract [en]

Waste-heat recovery from discharged slurries can improve the net raw biogas production in bio-methane process in order to meet the demand of a new generation of anaerobic digestion. In order to achieve a high efficient waste-heat recovery, in this work, a mathematical model of waste-heat recovery process with surface scraped heat exchanger (SSHE) was proposed with the consideration of the shear rate and temperature-dependent rheological behaviour. The convective heat transfer performance of SSHE was calculated numerically where slurry was considered. The contribution of waste heat recovery from the slurry to biogas production by SSHE and general shell-and-tube heat exchanger (STHE) were firstly calculated quantitatively, and the increase of net raw biogas production could be over 13.5% by SSHE with need of heat exchange area less than a quarter of STHE's, which showed a great potential to increase the net raw biogas production in bio-methane process with low equipment investments and more compactible structure.
