Anaerobic digestion of Crassulacean Acid Metabolism plants: Exploring alternative feedstocks for semi-arid lands
In this work, five Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM) species from the five different genera (Agave, Ananas, Euphorbia, Kalanchoe, and Opuntia) were selected as alternative feedstocks and their biochemical methane potentials (BMP) were investigated. Batch assays were performed using sludge and rumen fluid as inocula under uncontrolled pH and at mesophilic temperature (39 °C). Mean methane yields from the CAM plants inoculated with AD sludge ranged from 281 to 382 ml/gVS. These values were not...Expand abstract
