Abstract [en]

The performance of a novel reverse membrane bioreactor (RMBR) with encased microorganisms for syngas bio-methanation as well as a co-digestion process of syngas and organic substances was examined. The sachets were placed in the reactors and examined in repeated batch mode. Different temperatures and short retention time were studied. The digesting sludge encased in the PVDF membranes was able to convert syngas into methane at a retention time of 1 day and displayed a similar performance as the free cells in batch fermentation. The co-digestion of syngas and organic substances by the RMBR (the encased cells) showed a good performance without any observed negative effects. At thermophilic conditions, there was a higher conversion of pure syngas and co-digestion using the encased cells compared to at mesophilic conditions.[on SciFinder (R)]

Abstract [en]

of waste treatment processes, such as the anaerobic digestion. This biochemical process converts organic substrates into biogas, with anaerobic microorganisms. However, some types of substrates have low bio-degradability due to its recalcitrance or the presence of inhibitors. This can be solved by the coupling of anaerobic digestion with gasification, a thermochemical process that can convert organic substrates into syngas (H2, CO, and CO2) regardless of the substrate´s degradability. Consequently, syngas can be converted into biogas and other fermentative products via anaerobic digestion, in a process known as syngas fermentation. In comparison to the catalytic conversion of syngas, syngas fermentation has several advantages such as lower sensitivity to CO/H2/CO2 ratio and to syngas contaminants as well as higher product specificity.

The main goal of this thesis was to improve the syngas conversion rate into CH4 and H2 by addressing the cell washout, the cell inhibition by syngas contaminants, and the low gas-to-liquid mass transfer, which are major challenges in syngas fermentation. For this purpose, a reverse membrane bioreactor, containing a mixed culture encased in membranes, was used in various set ups. The membranes were used in order to retain the cells inside the bioreactors, to protect the cells against inhibitors, and to improve the gas holdup and gas-to-cell contact by decreasing the rise velocity of syngas bubbles. As evident from the results, the cell washout was successfully tackled during a continuous experiment that lasted 154 days. In addition, membrane bioreactors fed with the syngas contaminants, toluene and naphthalene, achieved approximately 92% and 15% higher CH4 production rate, respectively, compared with the free cell bioreactors. In order to improve the gas holdup and consequently the gas-to-liquid mass transfer of syngas, a floating membrane bed bioreactor was set up. This bioreactor contained membrane sachets, filled with inoculum that formed a packed floating membrane bed and achieved an increase of 38% and 28% for the conversion rate of H2 and CO, respectively. Furthermore, the addition of a mixture of heavy metals improved the production rates and yields during the syngas conversion into fermentative H2.
