When referring to anaerobic treatment, I am talking about the process where archea organisms produce methane as a part of waste stabilization. The chemistry of the anaerobic process on the surface appears much more complex than the aerobic system, but it is very similar except we are not using elemental oxygen as a terminal electron acceptor. (I'll get back to this biochemistry section in a future post). When considering an anaerobic digester unit you should first know the advantages and disadvantages of anaerobic waste treatment:
