The Institute of Environmental Protection Engineering

Laboratory of Pre-Treatment and Anaerobic Processes Engineering

The laboratory was established in 2006 and it was expanded in 2010 and 2012. It is an integral part of the Institute of Environmental Protection Engineering of the Faculty of Environmental Engineering, Lublin University of Technology. The laboratory conducts scientific research, commercial research activities, as well as research supporting the education process within the scope of diploma theses.

The scope of activities of laboratory includes:

  • batch tests to determine the biogas potential of individual substrates and their mixtures, as well as the kinetics of biogas production,
  • semi-flow studies in reactors with an active volume of 40 dm3, enabling evaluation and optimization of the anaerobic digestion and co-digestion parameters, including processes preceded by bioaugmentation,
  • research on pre-treatment methods of substrates, including milling, cavitation and thermo-chemical hydrolysis
  • evaluation of chemical composition of substrates and digest.
