Academics Lesson 2 of 4: Two Methodologies That Address These Challenges Today

Lesson 2 of 4 movie about "Most Common Process Challenges in the Field of Anaerobic Digestion". [Transcription included] We have at our disposal two popular ways to meet the challenges we came across in lesson one: batch and continuous fermentation tests. While both tests differ in their purpose and application, they both simulate the anaerobic digestion process on a smaller scale. Let’s look at how batch and continuous tests work, what they do, and the benefits and drawbacks of each method.
