Abstract: The anaerobic digestion of WAS (commonly called biosolids) is widely used since it offers advantages of decomposing organic material, destroying pathogens, stabilising the sludge and producing a high calorific biogas which can be energetically valorised e.g. in a CHP unit. The presence of volatile siloxanes (SX) in the sludge can however largely hamper the energy use of the biogas since they are transformed into an abrasive microcrystalline silica during the biogas combustion: this silica coats and damages the gas beneficiation equipment.
