    • Effects of Psychrophilic Storage on Manures as Substrate for Anaerobic Digestion 

      Bergland, Wenche Hennie; Dinamarca, Carlos; Bakke, Rune (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2014-08-05)
      The idea that storage can enhance manure quality as substrate for anaerobic digestion (AD) to recover more methane is evaluated by studying storage time and temperature effects on manure composition. Volatile fatty acids ...

    • Mapping anaerobic sludge bed community adaptations to manure supernatant in biogas reactors 

      Nordgård, Anna Synnøve Røstad; Bergland, Wenche Hennie; Bakke, Rune; Østgaard, Kjetill; Bakke, Ingunn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      In upflow anaerobic sludge bed (UASB) reactors, biomass present as granules allows for long solids retention time. Here, granules from a process treating pulp and paper industrial wastewater were successfully applied as ...
    • Methane from Syngas by Anaerobic Digestion 

      Shah, Sanjay; Bergland, Wenche Hennie; Bakke, Rune (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a prominent green technology used for methane production from organic waste. Previous studies have shown that the amount of CH4 produced during anaerobic digestion can be increased by adding ...
    • Modeling temperature effects in anaerobic digestion of domestic wastewater 

      Lohani, Sunil Prasad; Wang, Shuai; Bergland, Wenche Hennie; Khanal, Sanjay Nath; Bakke, Rune (Journal article, 2018)
      A combination of septic tank (ST) and up-flow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) as treatment for domestic wastewater was modeled with the anaerobic digestion model 1 (ADM1). The model was used to visualize the influence of ...
    • Modelling anaerobic digestion during temperature and load variations 

      Bergland, Wenche Hennie; Bakke, Rune (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Experimental results and simulations based on the Anaerobic Digestion Model No.1 (ADM1) with temperature effects on kinetics were used to evaluate rate limiting steps in sludge bed anaerobic digestion (AD) during load and ...
