A review of aquatic plant biomass pretreatment methods for biogas production

Abstract

The increasing global demand for renewable energy sources has led to interest in generating biogas from aquatic plant biomass. This research examines the pretreatment methods of biomass, aiming to enhance the efficiency of biogas production processes. The analysis presents mechanical, chemical, biological, or combined pretreatment techniques, assessing their respective advantages, limitations, and potential synergies. The review extends beyond individual methodologies to identify potential synergies or sequential applications that could maximize biogas production efficiency. This study ultimately facilitates moving the field forward, contributes to the transition to more sustainable energy solutions, identifies gaps in existing researches, paving the way for future investigations and combat to solve upcoming energy problems.

Vandens augalų biomasės pirminio apdorojimo biodujų gamybai metodų apžvalga


Santrauka


Pasaulyje didėjanti atsinaujinančių energijos išteklių paklausa paskatino susidomėjimą biodujų gamyba iš vandens augalų biomasės. Šiame darbe nagrinėjami biomasės pirminio apdorojimo metodai, kuriais siekiama padidinti biodujų gamybos procesų efektyvumą. Analizėje pateikiami mechaniniai, cheminiai, biologiniai arba kombinuoti pirminio apdorojimo būdai, įvertinami atitinkami jų pranašumai, trūkumai ir galima sinergija. Darbas apima atskirų metodų apžvalgą, kad būtų galima nustatyti galimas sinergijas arba nuoseklius pritaikymus, kurie galėtų padidinti biodujų gamybos efektyvumą. Šis darbas prisideda prie energijos gamybos sektoriaus pažangos ir tvaresnių energijos sprendimų, išryškina esamų taikymo metodų spragas bei atveria kelią sprendžiant būsimas energetikos problemas.
