How standardization and automation of lab equipment could help biogas research

How standardization and automation of lab equipment could help biogas research

Various process challenges within the field of anaerobic digestion are commonly recognized. For instance, the degradation process is too slow and inefficient, or the presence of toxic substances or nutrients is poorly managed. In this article, the current challenges are discussed and various recommendations are made. When these are followed, it is expected that the advancements in the research related to anaerobic digestion will progress much faster. This will lead to a quicker solution to the current technological challenges.
