A227- Designs of anaerobic digesters for producing biogas from municipal solid-waste

Auteur : Science direct

The production of biogas is of growing interest as fossil-fuel reserves decline. However, there exists a dearth of literature on the design considerations that would lead to process optimization in the development of anaerobic digesters aimed at creating useful commodities from the ever-abundant municipal solid-waste. Consequently, this paper provides a synthesis of the key issues …

Biochemical methane potential of fruits and vegetable solid waste feedstocks

Auteur : source : Science Direct

Fruits and vegetable solid wastes (FVSW) represent a potential energy resource if they can be properly and biologically converted to methane. They are renewable and their net CO2 contribution to the atmosphere is zero. Over 60×106 tons of fruits and vegetables are produced annually in India, of which only 1% is processed in the fruit …
