Anaerobic digestion of food waste was conducted at high OLR from 3.7 to 12.9kg-VSm(-3)day(-1) for 225days. Periods without organic loading were arranged between the each loading period. Stable operation at an OLR of 9.2kg-VS (15.0kg-COD) m(-3)day(-1) was achieved with a high VS reduction (91.8%) and high methane yield (455mLg-VS-1). The cell density increased in the periods without organic loading, and reached to 10.9×10(10)cellsmL(-1) on day 187, which was around 15 times higher than that of the seed sludge. There was a significant correlation between OLR and saturated TSS in the sludge (y=17.3e(0.1679×), r(2)=0.996, P<0.05). A theoretical maximum OLR of 10.5kg-VS (17.0kg-COD) m(-3)day(-1) was obtained for mesophilic single-stage wet anaerobic digestion that is able to maintain a stable operation with high methane yield and VS reduction.
