Use the simple wastewater and environmental protection calculator tool that helps you to calculate the required volume of digester online.

What is Anaerobic Digestion?

Anaerobic digestion is one of the oldest processes used for the stabilization of sludge. It involves the decomposition of organic and inorganic matter in the absence of molecular oxygen. The major applications of this process are in the stabilization of concentrated sludges produced from the treatment of wastewater.

Required Volume of Digester Calculation

Hydraulic retention time [min] :
Influent sludge flow rate [gal/day (m3/day)] :
Digester Volume (V) [ft3 (m3)] :


V = ?c × Q

  • ?c - required hydraulic retention time
  • Q - Influent sludge flow rate
  • V = required volume
