Thermotolerant cellulolytic Clostridiaceae and Lachnospiraceae rich consortium enhanced biogas production from oil palm empty fruit bunches by solid-state anaerobic digestion

Thermotolerant cellulolytic consortium for improvement biogas production from oil palm empty fruit bunches (EFB) by prehydrolysis and bioaugmentation strategies was investigated via solid-state anaerobic digestion (SS-AD). The prehydrolysis EFB with Clostridiaceae and Lachnospiraceae rich consortium have maximum methane yield of 252 and 349 ml CH4 g−1 VS with total EFB degradation efficiency of 62% and 86%, respectively. Clostridiaceae and Lachnospiraceae rich consortium augmentation in biogas reactor have maximum methane yield of 217 and 85.2 ml CH4 g−1 VS with degradation efficiency of 42% and 16%, respectively. The best improvement of biogas production was achieved by prehydrolysis EFB with Lachnospiraceae rich consortium with maximum methane production of 113 m3 CH4 tonne−1 EFB. While, Clostridiaceae rich consortium was suitable for augmentation in biogas reactor with maximum methane production of 70.6 m3 CH4 tonne−1 EFB. Application of thermotolerant cellulolytic consortium into the SS-AD systems could enhance biogas production of 3–11 times.
