Abstract:

The goal of this literature survey was to summarize the laboratory investigations on anaerobic co-digestion over the past four years in order to identify applications at wastewater treatment plants. Most co-digestion processes use municipal sewage sludge, the organic fraction of municipal solid waste, or cattle manure as the main waste. Co-digestates that are often added to these main wastes include wood wastes, industrial organic wastes, and farm wastes. The literature provides many studies that evaluate the digestibility of co-digestates, the performance and monitoring of co-digestion, inhibition of digestion by co-digestates, the design of the process (e.g., single stage or two-stage processes), and the operation temperature (e.g., mesophilic or thermophilic). The results of these studies have been summarized in tables.
