Co-digestion of manure with grass silage and pulp and paper mill sludge using the BMP methodology
2013 (English)In: International Journal of Environmental Science and Technology, ISSN 1735-1472Article in journal (Refereed) Submitted
The purpose of this research is to evaluate how methane production is affected by the co-digestion of pig and dairy manure with grass silage and pulp and paper mill sludge at mesophilic conditions, and to assess whether methane production is affected by other factors than the now known ones, i.e., nutrient deficiency, low buffering capacity, inadequate dilution, and an insufficient activity and amount of microorganism culture. The season of grass silage and manure collection proved to be an important, previously unreported, factor affecting short-term (20 days) methane production.
