Conventional wastewater treatment plants account for approximately 3% of the United States’ energy demand1. A potential energy-positive alternative is anaerobic wastewater treatment, which generates methane-rich biogas while producing less biosolids. One challenge of AnWT is ensuring that wastewater is continuously meeting effluent standards. To ensure that this is happening, the mechanism of wastewater transformation in relation to environmental conditions needs to be well understood. At two AnWT in Colorado, namely Plum Creek and Mines Park,...
