Title: BIOLOGICAL FILTER FOR METHANIZATION REACTORS AND REACTOR FOR METHANIZATION OF INDUSTRIAL EFFLUENTS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a biological filter for anaerobic reactors and a reactor for methanization of industrial effluents, preferably from the sugar-energy industry, which are comprised of features developed for efficiently solving the problems, limitations and drawbacks observed in the prior art. More particularly, the biological filter comprises layers (3) of filtering elements (4), which are spaced apart, and in each layer the filtering elements (4) are angularly offset in relation to the filtering elements (4) of the subsequent layer (3). In turn, the methanization reactor comprises a structure (21) responsible for housing a biological filter (10), comprising at least one ensemble (50) of layers (30) of filtering elements (40), each ensemble being formed of layers (30) formed of filtering elements (40), which are spaced apart, and in each layer the filtering elements are angularly offset in relation to the filtering elements of the subsequent layer.
