Biomethane from Biomass , Biowaste , and Biofuels

  title={Biomethane from Biomass , Biowaste , and Biofuels},
  author={Ann C. Wilkie},
dustrial wastes is efficiently accomplished through conversion to biogas, a mixture of mostly methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), via anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion is a process by which a complex mixture of symbiotic microorganisms transforms organic materials under oxygen-free conditions into biogas, nutrients, and additional cell matter, leaving salts and refractory organic matter. In practice, microbial anaerobic conversion to methane is a process for both effective waste… CONTINUE READING
