Abstract Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen. Anaerobic system advantages also include the recovery of energy in the form of methane from the degradation of organic substrates. Improving bioprocesses by implementation of microbial populations (bioaugmentation) with improved degradation abilities has been known for years. Bioaugmentation has been investigated as a method to decrease the recovery period of anaerobic digesters exposed to transient toxic event.
