A respirometric method for characterising the organic composition and biodegradation kinetics and the temperature influence on the biodegradation kinetics, for a mixture of sludge and bulking agent to be co-composted.
Bioresour Technol. 2005 Jan; 96(2):169-80.BT

Abstract

A respirometric method was set up to study kinetics of biological reactions involved in the treatment of organic wastes-sludge mixed with pine barks--by composting. Oxygen consumption rates of this type of mixture were monitored during 10-20 days, using a 10 l respirometric cell kept at constant temperature and moisture. Oxygen consumption kinetics were modelled and organic matter composition was characterised as biomass, easily-biodegradable, slowly-biodegradable and non-biodegradable organic matter. The influence of temperature on kinetics was tested. Results show that this respirometric method is a useful tool for the characterisation of solid organic matter biodegradability and for the modelling of the biological kinetics of the composting process.
