Abstract
The production of renewable energy from organic waste streams is one of the most important aspects in the concept of sustainable development. Anaerobic digestion can be considered one of the main techniques to treat organic waste streams, allowing both waste stabilization and renewable energy production in the form of biogas. Its widespread application on full-scale relates to the fact that anaerobic digestion has, apart from biogas production and organic waste stabilization, several other advantages over alternative biological processes, e.g. a low cell yield, a high organic loading rate, limited nutrient demands, and low costs for operation and maintenance of ...
