Abstract This research focuses on the industrial waste application as raw materials to create composite material and its characterisation for their possible application in anaerobic digestion. As the limitation of effective biogas digestion process is associated with inhibition of the some elements and acidification of biodegradable organic matter, therefore a highly porous alkaline composite material was evaluated in this research as buffer capacity increasing material. Batch experiments were provided with composite material additive in anaerobic digesters. Results indicate that alkaline composite materials in anaerobic digesters treated acidic whey could increase BMP up to 22%, but pH value could be kept in the optimal range (7.2–7.4) to ensure the effective digestion process
