ABSTRACT
The effectiveness of biogas deposit formed during methane fermentation of municipal sewage sludge has been conducted. In this investigation the amount of the biogas occurring in the process as well as its content depending on the temperature of the realized process have been determined. In addition, possibilities of process stabilization have been defined by determining the degree of the decomposition/degradation of the dry matter and organic dry matter of a deposit being fermented for each of the examined temperatures ranging 27°C to 51°C. Besides, the output and material efficiency of the process in the function of the examined temperatures have been determined.
