ABSTRACT
This paper reports the findings from studies carried out to determine the effect of enzyme addition on the efficiency of anaerobic digestion process. Some commercially available enzymes were used to study their performance in enhancing the rate-limiting hydrolysis step during anaerobic treatment of distillery wastewater. Results show that the addition of enzymes can enhance the hydrolytic activities in anaerobic digestion process (which will bring about increase in biogas production), but the performance depends on the nature and sources of the waste being treated and the type and dosage of enzyme.

    The application of low-temperature (10 °C) anaerobic digestion (LtAD) for the treatment of complex dairy-based wastewater in an inverted fluidised bed (IFB) reactor was investigated. Inadequate mixing intensity provoked poor hydrolysis of the substrate (mostly protein), which resulted in low...

    Anaerobic stabilization is a method of choice nowadays for food waste treatment. It does not only reduce the waste quantities but also generate biogas containing methane as a renewable energy source. Anaerobic stabilization proceeds in three stages: hydrolysis, acid fermentation, and methane...
