Cellruptor or "BugBuster" (PATENTED)
The CELLRUPTOR® process has been developed by
Missing Link Technology, LLC as a cell disruption process,
principally for the pre-treatment of feedstock prior to the
anaerobic digestion of the sludge.
The CELLRUPTOR® process dramatically improves the
operational and economic dynamics of treating cell-based
organic feedstocks using anaerobic digestion.
CELLRUPTOR® uses a unique pressure swing technology
to open up biosolids materials, such as Secondary Activated
Sludge or crop biomass, to increase the rate of subsequent
fermentative processes, including anaerobic digestion.
By using CELLRUPTOR® to pre treat certain feedstocks for
anaerobic digestion the yield of biogas can be increased, and, if required, the throughput increased.
The process is simple and effective in enhancing the reduction of volatile solids and increase in overall gas generation, without the energy requirement and operational costs of some alternatives.
The process is simple and effective in enhancing the reduction of volatile solids and increasing in overall biogas generation, without significant energy requirement and operational cost.
The CELLRUPTOR® process in an effective pre-treatment process for certain feedstocks for anaerobic digestion, where volatile solids destruction and biogas production require optimization.
