Kinetic studies for anaerobic fermentation of swine waste with and without addition of algal biomass and growth of algal biomass by using raw and anaerobically digested swine waste are investigated. Design parameters for these two biological reactors are evalauted and analyzed. With these parameters, a proposed integrated swine waste management system can be developed. This interrated system offers advantages such as, small land requirement, possible biogas collection, further soluble chemical oxygen demand, nitrogen and phosphorus removal, and environmental acceptability.
