Summary of "Pilot-scale biomethanation of cattle manure using dense membranes."

This study aimed at studying the biomethanation process using a 100 L pilot-scale digester equipped with a dense membrane for hydrogen injection. Hydrogen mass transfer was characterized and the impact of hydrogen flowrate, agitation rate and of the co-injection of CO, on biogas production and composition, was precisely studied. A linear relationship between H flowrate and the CO and CH rates in biogas was found but no impact on biogas flowrate was shown. It was also noticed that, without exogenous CO injection, and for high H injection flowrates, residual H could be found at the digester outlet due to local CO limitation. Thus, this study suggested that biogas production in biomethanation process at the pilot scale was probably rather limited by the dissolved CO transport within the liquid phase than by the hydrogen mass transfer itself.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Small-scale tests of methods and procedures to be used on a larger scale if the pilot study demonstrates that these methods and procedures can work.

A scale comprising 18 symptom constructs chosen to represent relatively independent dimensions of manifest psychopathology. The initial intended use was to provide more efficient assessment of treatment response in clinical psychopharmacology research; however, the scale was readily adapted to other uses. (From Hersen, M. and Bellack, A.S., Dictionary of Behavioral Assessment Techniques, p. 87)

Artificially produced membranes, such as semipermeable membranes used in artificial kidney dialysis (RENAL DIALYSIS), monomolecular and bimolecular membranes used as models to simulate biological CELL MEMBRANES. These membranes are also used in the process of GUIDED TISSUE REGENERATION.

A subjective psychometric response scale used to measure distinct behavioral or physiological phenomena based on linear numerical gradient or yes/no alternatives.
