Evaluation of the energy potential of industrial waste for use through anaerobic digestion.

Project: Research Project

Project Details


General Objective: Determine the energy potential of industrial waste for the production of biomethane from anaerobic digestion.

Specific objectives:

1. Identify the Colombian industrial sectors with the highest generation of residual biomass suitable for anaerobic digestion.

2. Select at least 3 residues with the highest theoretical potential for anaerobic digestion.

3. Determine the energy potential of the selected waste through its physicochemical characterization
