The report represents a detailed study of the effects of amino acids on the anaerobic sludge digestion process and the effects of the anaerobic environment on the degradation of five selected amino acids. Radiotracer techniques permitted a detailed assay of the distribution of the individual amino acids in the liquid, solid, and gaseous phases. The control of the amino acid concentration in plant-scale anaerobic digestions systems may lead to a more efficient operation and increased gas production. The purpose of the report is to serve as the basis for a more extensive evaluation of the role of amino acids during anaerobic digestion and for the establishment of the relationships of amino acids to the effective stabilization of wastewater solids.
