The article discusses high strength stocks (HSF) used for codigestion. Topics discussed include boost in biogas production with addition of small portion of HSF into a digester according to the energy resource recovery facilities (ERRF), funds provided to consulting firm CDM Smith under the U.S. Department of Defense Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) to research on anaerobic digestion for food waste treatment and anaerobic digester financed by AGreen joint venture.
