What is co-digestion?

Co-digestion happens when more than one type of organic material is digested at the same time. Digesters are often built for a single purpose. For example, a farmer may build an anaerobic digester to handle cow manure. If the farmer also takes food waste from a local grocery store and puts the food waste in the digester along with the cow manure, it is called co-digestion.
