OPTIMIZATION OF BIOGAS PRODUCTION FROM LIGNOCELULOSIC MATERIALS BY DIFFERENT METHODS OF SUBSTRATE TREATMENT
- 1 Institute of Chemical Engineering, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, Sofia, Bulgaria
One of the most used types of biofuels is the biogas, produced during the process of anaerobic digestion of organic waste. The current project aims utilization of plant biomass waste, used to produce energy in the form of biogas, after proper pretreatment, in order to enhance energetic value and yield. Proper resource and method of pretreatment will be chosen, in order to obtain high biogas yields. The chosen technology will be tested in a plug-flow bioreactor to optimize the technical parameters.
