  • Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), duckweed (Spirodela sp. andLemna sp.), water pennywort (Hydrocotyle ranunculoides), and kudzu (Pueraria lobata) were anaerobically fermented using an anaerobic filter technique that reduced the total digestion time from 90 d to an average of 23 d and produced 0.14-0.22 m3 CH4/kg (dry weight) (2.3-3.6 ft3/lb) from mature filters for the 3 aquatic species. Kudzu required an average digestion time of 33 d and produced an average of 0.21 m3 CH4/kg (dry weight… CONTINUE READING
