What Is Anaerobic Digestion?
Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a series of biological processes by which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen the end product of which is biogas. The process occurs naturally in swamps and bogs and also takes place in landfill sites. AD is a 4-stage process: hydrolysis, acidification, acetogenesis & methanogenesis. These are long words which describe why cows have four stomach compartments.
History of Anaerobic Digestion
AD has been applied for nearly a century in the water industry as the favoured method for the stabilisation of sewage sludge, with biogas production viewed as a bonus. There are thousands of digesters in rural China, India and Nepal where village-scale plants are important for the recycling of nutrients in farm manure and producing biogas for cooking and lighting.
