Table 4 Comparison of acidogenic digestion yields using different agro-industrial leftovers

From: Efficient molasses fermentation under high salinity by inocula of marine and terrestrial origin

Biowaste origin OLR (gCOD L−1 d−1) Max COD to VFAs (%) Reference Notes
Molasses 9.81 ± 0.1 63.5 ± 3.2 This study Average of marine and terrestrial PBBRs
Dairy 8.0 48.4 [69] Includes alcohols
Olive mill 13.3 66.0 [70] Used a PBBR
Dairy 4.0 59.1 [71] Includes alcohols
Food 83.3 43.4 [72] Lower OLR (44 gCOD L−1 d−1) had also lower efficiencies (30.5%)
Sugar beet 2.7 64.2 [34] Chemicals addition
