Effects of incineration bottom ash and ammonia on the acidogenic stage of two-stage mesophilic anaerobic digestion
Batch mesophilic 37oC reactors fed with acetic acid (0.5 mL AC/L every 5-6 days), have been amended with different amount of incineration bottom ash/ and ammonium chloride for 120 days. At the start of the experiments, different mass of IBA was added to the reactors which had been amended with IBA. Then the group of the reactors which amended with NH4CL had received 4 g/L NH4Cl every run of 5-6 days. In parallel batch reactors without IBA/ and NH4Cl were also run. Reactor performance (methane production) and stability (pH drop and VFA accumulation) were investigated. On day end of the experiments i.e. on day 120, a representative digestate sample was collected from each reactor, then sequenced for 16S rRNA gene. The sequence files shown in this data set are fastq files from the illumina sequencing analysis.
