Limited Anaerobic digestion is a natural bacterial process that converts biomass to energy. Biomass is any organic material that comes from plants, animals or their wastes. The Process produces, rather than consumes, energy. 17. Anaerobic DigestionWhat is Anaerobic Digestion?LimitedProcess Stages 18. Anaerobic DigestionAgricultural A.DLimited 19.
