Pre-treatment of biomass with plasma discharges fosters biogas productivity [Full subscriber]

The cost-effectiveness of biogas production from biomass is limited by the presence of polymeric structures, which are recalcitrant to digestion by bacteria. Therefore, pre-treatments must often be applied prior to anaerobic fermentation to increase yields of biogas. Now, researchers at the Leibniz Institute of Plasma Science and Technology are testing plasma formation in biomass with, they say, promising results.…
