Abstract

Anaerobic digestion provides a potential alternative to traditional methods of brewery waste treatment. This chapter provides an overview of the principles of the anaerobic digestion process and the key process parameters. This is followed by an analysis of the application of anaerobic digestion technology to brewery waste management and key considerations specific to this waste stream, including waste characteristics, pretreatment and co-digestion requirements. Disposal and re-use options for the by-products of the anaerobic digestion processes are also addressed. The chapter concludes with suggestions of areas for further research for cost-effective application of anaerobic digestion in the brewing industry.
