Anaerobic digestion of swine manure: Sung-Hwan farm-scale biogas plant in Korea

  title={Anaerobic digestion of swine manure: Sung-Hwan farm-scale biogas plant in Korea},
  author={Kyu-Jung Chae and S. K. Yim and K. H. Choi and Woo-Kyun Park and Dong Kyu Lim},
In order to increase the use of biogas plants in Korea, a farm-scale biogas plant with a working volume of 200 m was constructed at the pig farm in Sung Hwan, Korea as a demonstration project supported by the Korean government. This plant mainly consists of an anaerobic digester processing daily 10 m pig manure and a dual-fuel engine-generator to produce heat and electricity. Digestion takes place in a semi-continuous, single stage, completely stirred anaerobic digester under mesophilic…

The effectiveness of cow dung for biogas production was investigated, using a laboratory scale 10L bioreactor working in batch and semi-continuous mode at 53 o C. Anaerobic digestion seemed feasible

Effect Of Co-Digesting Pig Slurry With Maize Stalk On Biogas Production At Mesophilic Temperature

The present energy crisis has stimulated various research programmes to evaluate energy potentials of renewable energy sources. To this end, the effect of co-digesting pig slurry with maize stalks


Microbial dynamics showed that hydrolytic bacterial population was initially increased and decreased towards the end of anaerobic digestion, but in methanogenic population, they were initially very low and increased gradually towards the start of an aerobic digestion.

Economic Perspectives of Biogas Production via Anaerobic Digestion

The results show that the cost of biogas production from process and economic models are in line with the literature with a potential to go even lower for small-scale plants with technological advancements.

Scope of Biogas generation from Kitchen wastes and its economical adoptability

The main objective of this review is to give an insight and update of the state of biogas technology research in some selected Indian states in peer reviewed literatures by highlighting the

Determination of optimum mixing ratio of cow dung and poultry droppings in biogas production under tropical condition

There is urgent need for proper waste management and development of alternate energy using wastes in developing countries. Optimal digestion mixture of substrates ensures that waste products of

Replacing Agricultural Diesel Fuel with Biomethane from Agricultural Waste: Assessment of Biomass Availability and Potential Energy Supply in Piedmont (North-West Italy)

Agricultural and livestock wastes are an important resource for the production of renewable fuels such as biomethane, and the effective management of the components of supply chain, such as available

Study on the Improved Biogas Generation Through Magnetic Field Modified Anaerobic Digestion

Abstract — The effect of the magnetic field (MF) on the effectiveness of biogas generation was studied and it was observed that the increased intensity of magnetic field resulted in an increase in

Variation in Anaerobic Digestion: Need for Process Monitoring.pdf



Study of thermal hydrolysis as a pretreatment to mesophilic anaerobic digestion of pig slurry.

The thermal degradation tests showed that hydrolysis occurring during the thermal pretreatment is due to thermal phenomena, and it was positive with almost non-degraded slurries containing low NH4(+)-N concentration, and negative when using degraded slurries with high NH4-N content.

Increase of anaerobic degradation of particulate organic matter in full-scale biogas plants by mechanical maceration.

Results from the macerators indicate that the biodegradability of the fibers is rather enhanced by shearing which is not necessarily reflected by a change in fiber size, and achange in biogas potential was not correlated to a smaller size of the fiber.
