Anaerobic digestion of organic farm waste is widely used for methane production. However, several factors can affect the methane production yield, including inhibitory compounds. This paper provides a detailed summary of the small batch reactor research conducted on the enhancement of anaerobic digestion by microalgal bacteria. Organic farm waste (manure) was mixed with synthetic wastewater and microbial flocs in an attempt to increase methane production. The results outline how different factors relate and affect the methane production rate, including ammonia and chlorophyll, and offer headway for successfully increasing methane yields of microalgae bacteria enhanced digestion.
