Abstract
Food and beverage wastes are rich in organic material such as carbohydrates, proteins, oils, fats, sugars and others. Those high levels of organic material translate in high amounts of chemical oxygen demand (COD) and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) which cause several pollutions problems, such as water quality degradation and air pollution. Anaerobic digestion (AD) appears as a great solution given its ability to treat and convert organic matter into biogas. The current objective is to use a two-phase AD to treat wastes from juice (apple pulp) and winery industry (winery waste with grape concentrated (WWGC)) in order to convert as much COD into biogas. For this...
