Production of Methane from Sugar Beet

G. Ciuffreda, M. Caliceti & E. Tamburini
The objective of this study was to assess the biogas yields produced by using sugar beet as co­digestion feedstock in the Italian context. Sugar beet may be considered as an energy crop since it has great potential for the production of biogas due to the high content of digestible matter (sugars and fibres). The use of different biomass sources in anaerobic digesters (for example, as a replacement for corn silage) is becoming necessary in order...
