Considering the growing number of methanisation facilities in France and abroad, operator demand for rapid and reliable means of in situ diagnosis of anaerobic biological activity diagnostic recently increased. The «F420» microscopic observation technique, applied to fresh anaerobic biomass diagnosis, has shown itself to be as efficient as observing flocculated sludge in an aeration tank. This technique enables the rapid observation of methanogenic biomass, revealing the health status of the anaerobic reactor. In this article, Veolia presents two examples of practical applications arising from its last three years of diagnostic application. Source
