Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR RECEIVING AND CONDITIONING ORGANIC WASTE BY ANAEROBIC BIOCONVERSION
(FR) APPAREIL DE RECEPTION ET DE CONDITIONNEMENT DE DECHETS ORGANIQUES PAR BIOCONVERSION ANAEROBIE
Abstract
(EN)
A tank (1) for an apparatus for receiving and conditioning organic waste by anaerobic bioconversion, in particular, waste produced by restaurant kitchens and other facilities, includes a main enclosure wherein bioconversion takes place, and a secondary enclosure (18) for receiving and storing ground organic waste before it is transferred to the main enclosure for completion of its bioconversion. A hopper (4) or other device for receiving the organic waste is associated with a grinder (2) and is connected to the secondary enclosure (18) of the tank for feeding the ground organic waste. A recirculation system (12, 15) for recycling the contents of the tank includes a pump (13), means for distributing (17a, 17b) the contents of the main enclosure between the different levels threreof, and separate means (9, 22) for removing solid residues and liquid waste.
(FR)
La cuve (1) d'un appareil de réception et de conditionnement de déchets organiques, notamment des déchets de cuisine dans des restaurants et autres institutions, fonctionnant par bioconversion anaérobie, comporte une enceinte principale qui est le siège de la bioconversion, et une enceinte secondaire (18) destinée à recevoir et stocker les déchets organiques broyés avant d'être transférés à l'enceinte principale pour compléter la bioconversion. Une trémie (4) ou autre dispositif de réception des déchets organiques est associée à un broyeur (2) et reliée à l'enceinte secondaire (18) de la cuve pour l'introduction des déchets organiques broyés. Un ensemble de circuits de recyclage (12, 15) du contenu de la cuve comporte une pompe (13), des circuits de distribution (17a, 17b) du contenu de l'enceinte principale entre des niveaux différents à l'intérieur de celle-ci, et des moyens d'extraction distincts (9, 22) pour des résidus solides et des rejets liquides.
