The Induced Bed Reactor (IBR) is a high rate anaerobic digester designed to treat high-solids, high strength wastes, such as those found in dairy manures and mixed solid wastes. The IBR has been successfully operated at bench, pilot and full scale. The objective of this paper is to present design and implementation of a 3,800 L pilot scale facility at The Ohio State University's OARDC facility in Wooster, OH for testing and optimization of IBR systems at small dairies.
