Title (EN) METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR PRODUCING BIOFUELS AND BIOENERGY PRODUCTS FROM SEWAGE SLUDGE, INCLUDING RECALCITRANT SLUDGE
(FR) PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES DE PRODUCTION DE BIOCARBURANTS ET DE PRODUITS BIOÉNERGÉTIQUES À PARTIR DE BOUES D'ÉPURATION, DONT DES BOUES RÉMANENTES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The present invention provides methods and systems (SLUDFUEL system) for producing biofuel and bioenergy products using, as starting raw material, municipal, industrial, and/or farm sewage sludge, including recalcitrant sludge containing high concentrations of heavy metals, and produced after waste treatment. In accordance with the invention, municipal, industrial, and farm sewage sludge, including recalcitrant sludge, can serve as a carbon source to support the metabolism of synthetic microorganisms to produce biofuels and bioenergy products.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des procédés et des systèmes (système SLUDFUEL) de production de biocarburant et de produits bioénergétiques utilisant, en tant que matière première, des boues d'épuration urbaines, industrielles et/ou agricoles, dont des boues rémanentes contenant des concentrations élevées en métaux lourds, et obtenues après traitement des déchets. Conformément à l'invention, les boues d'épuration urbaines, industrielles et agricoles, dont les boues rémanentes, peuvent servir de source de carbone en vue de l'alimentation du métabolisme de microorganismes de synthèse à des fins de production de biocarburants et de produits bioénergétiques.
