This paper presents an experimental study on anaerobic degradation of lipids-rich food wastes by using the high solids co-digestion process. The experiments were conducted under mesophilic (35 degrees C) and thermophilic (55 degrees C) condition, respectively, by using a semi-continuous flow completely mixed reactor. The influent TS level was controlled at around 10%, while the hydraulic retention time (HRT) was changed from 15 days to 7.5 days. The lipids (fats or oil and grease) content in… CONTINUE READING
