Optimizing co-digestion of industrial, commercial and institutional (IC&I) organic waste and developing an integrated nutrient recovery technique

Promoting the use of renewable energy such as biogas produced from organic waste is one the main alternatives to achieve more sustainable development strategies. Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is an efficient and proven technology, which can be employed to convert Organic Waste to Biogas as Renewable Natural Gas (RNG), and to reduce global methane emissions. The main objective of this research is to determine and optimize the input recipe of mixed feedstock organic waste for an Anaerobic Digester (AD) to take advantage of economy of scale and to have synergetic effect on biogas production. The residual product of AD, called digestate is usually used as fertilizer. The recovery the nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium from digestate would prevent their leaching to waterways as one of the most important environmental challenges. TO BE CONT’D
