About this book

The anaerobic digestion of solid waste is a process that has become a major focus of interest in waste management throughout the world. Greater knowledge of the theory and practice of anaerobic digestion is needed, both as the basis for improving plant design and to assist in the management of landfills. This symposium brought together two hundred of the world's top experts in anaerobic digestion, from academic and industrial backgrounds, to report the latest results and share their experience of anaerobic digestion technology. The 27 papers selected for inclusion in these proceedings fall into the following categories: fundamentals, kinetics, modelling and control; process aspects, performance and design; anaerobic co-digestion and polishing treatment; chemicals from solid waste; landfill - fundamentals, kinetics, modelling and control ; landfill operation, exploitation and leachate treatment. As an authoritative survey of the state of the art in anaerobic digestion of solid waste these proceedings will be an essential resource for scientists and engineers researching into the fundamentals of the process, and those working to optamise the applications of anaerobic digestion to the treatment of industrial, agricultural and, in particular, municipal solid wastes.
