Lignocellulose is a large energy source in plants and can be made partly accessible in biogas processes using enzyme preparations. To create a low-cost and high effective enzyme preparation with an extensive enzyme spectrum new enzyme sources are under investigation. This work aims to optimize the biogas and in particular the methane production of difficultly fermentable substrates using residues from edible mushroom production. The utili-zation of residues of food or agricultural industries plays a central...
