Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the optimal substrate/inoculum (S/I) ratio for solid state anaerobic digestion (SS-AD) of beef manure and sawdust bedding mixtures. The organic material removal and methane yield performance were evaluated at five different S/I levels (1,2,4, 50, and beef manure alone on a VS basis) for 49 days at 37°C. Results showed that biodegradable volatile solids (BVS) reduction of beef manure alone test unit was 76% which was not significantly different from the rest of all inoculated test units. The methane production potential of all five test units showed similar levels (135 to 154 mL/g VS), regardless of S/I ratio. Although it showed similar methane production potential, the beef manure alone and S/I ratio 50 test units showed the highest methane yields of 7.3 and 7.2 based on the volume of methane pro-duced per volume of digester, respectively. In addition, when considering utilization efficiency of the available digester volume, the beef manure alone treatment was 15% higher than that of the S/I ratio 50 treatment. These results reveal that the beef manure and sawdust bedding mixture does not require inoculation to improve SS-AD performance.
