Abstract: This study presents effect of pretreatment using anaerobic inoculum (PT-AI) and thermo-chemical pretreatment (PT-TC) on solubilization of limed fleshings (LFs). Solubilization of LF in PT-AI (93.3%) was more than PT-TC. From biochemical methane potential (BMP) studies, LFs with PT-AI generated 0.16 m3 of CH4 /kg CODtotal added, which was 2.7 and 1.5 times more than LFs pretreated with NaOH and KOH respectively.
