Abstract
The objective of the project has been to quantitatively define the intermediate molecules preceding methane formation during sludge digestion. The assumption is made that if these intermediates are clearly defined the factors influencing their rates of metabolism can then be investigated, and that understanding of factors influencing these rates should suggest methods for controlling and increasing the rate of anaerobic digestion processes. The contribution of various intermediates as precursors of methane have been investigated using methods similar to those previously described by the principal investigator.
