Dear all

After four years of research about anaerobic digestion using the organic
fraction of municipal solid waste in developing countries, Eawag/Sandec has
published a handbook summarizing its findings.

The book "Anaerobic Digestion of Biowaste in Developing Countries -
Practical Information and Case Studies" can be downloaded for free:
http://www.eawag.ch/forschung/sandec/publikationen/swm/dl/biowaste.pdf. If
you like to order hard copies, please contact caterina.dallatorre at eawag.ch.

This book compiles existing and recently generated knowledge on AD of urban
biowaste at small and medium scale with special consideration given to the
conditions prevailing in developing countries. Written for actors working
in the waste and renewable energy sector, the book is divided into two
parts: Part 1 focuses on practical information related to the AD supply
chain (substrate-, process-, and product chain), and Part 2 presents
selected case studies from around the world.

We hope this book can contribute to a better understanding of AD using
solid biowaste as substrate. Thanks for spreading the link to interested
persons and organizations.

Kind regards,
