Abstract

The purpose of this project is to examine whether large-scale fermentation of manure according to the two-phase principle would demonstrate better energy production than the traditionally applied digesters according to the stirred one-phase principle. At the same time this project examines on a relevant scale whether fermentation of manure constitutes a reliable and economically justified part of large-scale manure processing. For this purpose two digesters were examined, the most important characteristic of which was the division of the fermentation tank into two separate compartments. As a result of this division the digester offers the possibility of making the fermentation run in two phases.
