Innovative Methods of Obtaining Substrates and Pre-treatment in the Production of Biogas

Sławomir Kurpaska , Paweł Kiełbasa , Zygmunt Sobol


The article presents contemporary technical and technological capabilities in the production of biogas from organic substances of various types, including waste products which are a by-product of the operation of wastewater management facilities, as well as by-products of the meat industry and municipal waste management. Alternatives are discussed regarding traditional raw materials (those of the so-called first generation of biofuels), including raw materials obtained from waste materials, from the agricultural and food industries, and from plants with biofuel potential. The latest methods for pre-treatment of raw materials involving digestion of lignocellulosic structures, which are key for the effective use of the biogas potential of these substrates, are also discussed.
