Different pretreatments for increasing the anaerobic biodegradability in swine manure.


The effect of three methods (mechanical, chemical, and thermal pretreatment) were tested to improve methane production and anaerobic biodegradability of swine wastes. The first experiment was designed to determine the biodegradability enhancement through the separation of liquid and solid matrix by using a 0.25mm pore size screen (mechanical pretreatment… (More)
