Title: METHOD FOR INCREASING METHANE YIELD IN ANAEROBIC DIGESTERS WITH A CELLULOLYTIC BACTERIA COCKTAIL (CEBAC-S) PREPARED WITH RUMEN FLUID OBTAINED FROM SHEEP
Abstract:
This invention is related to a method for increasing methane yield in anaerobic digesters by adding a cellulolytic bacteria cocktail (cebac-s) in order to increase methane yield in a system by increasing the hydrolysis efficiency at a maximum level, in anaerobic digesters that are processed with lignocellulosic waste, such as animal manure, agricultural waste, energy plants, food residue, sewage sludge, household wastewater and industrial wastewater. The invention is related to a method for increasing methane yield in anaerobic digesters containing a cellulolytic bacteria cocktail (cebac-s), characterized in that said method comprises the steps of obtaining rumen fluid from a healthy sheep that have not been given antibiotics, said fluid comprising Bacteroidales, Lachnospiraceae, Lentisphaeria, Ruminococcaceae, Firmicutes, Synergistales and other bacteria in order to obtain a cellulolytic bacteria cocktail, and adding said cellulolytic bacteria cocktail to digesters.
