The effects of temperature (35 and 55° C) and influent Volatile Solids (VS) concentration (S0 = 33·5, 43·6, 54·3, 61·8 and 77·1 kg VS m−3) on the kinetic parameter K (an increase in K indicates inhibition of fermentation) of swine manure were evaluated using 3-dm3 laboratory-scale fermentors. Ultimate methane (CH4) yield (B0) of the swine manure was 0·48 ± 0·02m3 CH4 (kg VS fed)−1 as determined by 109-day batch fermentations. K increased exponentially as S0 increased, and was described by: K… CONTINUE READING
