This book includes a recent update and a closer look at the anaerobic digestion (AD) process. In addition, it introduces a new tool for the modelling and optimization of the AD process. The authors in this book review the strengths and weaknesses of AD techniques on different aspects to enhance the product yield. This book will be helpful for future researchers in the field of anaerobic digestion. It will also identify the research gap, strengths, weaknesses and promote the AD technologies to real scale.
