The development of this anaerobic digester (AD) foaming guidance document is based on the need for a specific detailed methodology that water resource recovery facilities (WRRF) personnel can follow and implement to manage or mitigate AD foam incidents. This guidance manual is the final product following a comprehensive research effort on AD foaming in fullscale WRRFs. It is the outcome of lessons learned from extensive literature review, WRRF surveys, full-scale data studies and experimental analyses. The primary goals of this document are to: 1) serve as a practical and usable tool for WRRFs, 2) present feasible alternatives that are cost-effective, 3) present large amounts of practical, focused information in a concise manner, and 4) present information of sound technical and scientific basis that can become a standard or foundation for foam management in WRRFs.
