Biochar addition in the anaerobic digestion of the organic fraction of municipal solid waste for biogas production
August 20-25, 2017
The continuous decline of fossil fuel availability and the ever increasing concern about environmental pollution, expressed by scientists, governments and public at large, are stimulating the research on renewable energy production. In this perspective, anaerobic digestion (AD) of the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) is recently meeting with increasing interest. It is a process viable both from an economic and technological standpoints, capable to combine the environmental friendly re-cycle of large amount of OFMSW combined to the production of methane, an excellent fossil-based fuels substitute (Chatterjee and Mazumder, 2016).
