Common Factors Affecting Performance of Anaerobic Digester : A Review

Authors(1) :-Abhinav Krishna Singh

The operation of anaerobic digester depends on number of factors. Some of these factors are hydraulic retention time, solids retention time, organic loading rate, pH, mixing, alkalinity, temperature, and reactor configuration. A study of these factor are performed to know how these effect the performance of anaerobic digester.
