ABSTRACT
Anaerobic treatment of liquid and solid wastes has become a high importance in Germany for pollution control and renewable energy production. Anaerobic digestion processes are applied in agriculture, agro-industry and with increasing success also within the municipal sector. The technology is used on small family-size farms but also on large industrial scale. Within the last three years the application of anaerobic treatment processes has been increased considerably in the different sectors. Only in agriculture the number of installations increased from 140 to 370 plants with an increase of the total reactor volume by a factor of 13. The most important applications and recent advances in reactor design and process development will be presented.
Keywords: Anaerobic treatment | Co-digestion | Bio-wastes | Manure
