Abstract

A novel substrate (obtained from biofraction of municipal solid waste by pressing and called LPW) rich in organic substances was used in three anaerobic degradation processes (biogas, biohydrogen fermentation and microbial fuel cells) to comparatively assess their feasibility for energy recovery. It has turned out that all the processes have successfully degraded that substrate and produced energy carriers (methane and hydrogen) as well as bioelectricity. The maximum energy yields (J g-1 CODremoved day-1) and associated COD removal capacities were 255, 200, 2.8 and 46, 52 and 72 % for biohydrogen, biogas and microbial fuel cell, respectively. The outcomes suggested the prominence of biohydrogen process for simultaneous waste treatment and energy recovery from LPWunder the test conditions ensured.
