Anaerobic digestion technology has made some significant advancement in recent years. Different government agencies and professional groups have published several reports time to time on different individual steps of the process- like feed pretreatment, biogas upgrading or resource recovery of digestate etc., covering only some of these advancements. In addition, there are several hand books available that although cover the whole process, but only in a very basic level. There remains a lack of a comprehensive document that captures all the promising advancements and emerging technologies for the entire anaerobic digestion treatment process; starting from the beginning to the end. I have authored this book to fulfill that need in the industry. This book covers almost all the recent advancements in the industry starting from the emerging feed stocks to resource recovery of digestate; providing sufficient details on theories and practices, technologies and technology suppliers. I am confident that both the beginners and the experienced professionals will find this book useful.
