Abstract

The effect of different mixing ratios of fish processing waste (FPW) with a liquid fraction (LF) of hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) of bamboo residues on biogas and methane yield was investigated. The different mixing ratios (FPW + LF) and HTC temperature (200-280 °C) had significant effects on biogas and methane production. The anaerobic co-digestion of the various mixing ratio of FPW and LF of bamboo residues did not enhance the methane yield compared to the AD of FPW alone. However, a mixture of 75FPW + 25LF(2 2 0) presented a comparable methane production (133 mL/g VS) to that achieved with 100FPW (142 mL/g VS), which represents an increase of only 6.4%. The ratio of 75FPW + 25LF(2 2 0) increased the biogas yield by 81% compared to the control group of 100LF(2 2 0). The mixing ratio of 75 FPW + 25LF(2 2 0) did not require clean water input to dilute FPW for biogas production and can be a practical waste management method.
