Effect of Bio-Augumentation on Biokinetic Parameters in the Mesophillic Anaerobic Digestion of Poultry Droppings

By Wauton I and Gumus R. H


Abstract:- The effect of bio-augumentation on biokinetics parameters in the mesophillic anaerobic digestion of poultry droppings was carried out. The parameters investigated include: the maximum specific growth rate, yield, COD removal efficiency, decay coefficient and the growth phases. It was observed that inoculation positively affect the lag phase, exponential growth phases, yield, specific growth rate and COD removal efficiency. This was achieved by integrated recycle of digested sludge into the reactor, whose value depended on the biomass yield, for the recycle stream to serve as inoculum. Keywords:- Mesophillic Anaerobic digestion, biokinetic parameters, Inoculum, Poultry dropping I
