Anaerobic digestion can be used to degrade food waste and recover energy. Methane is a biogas that can be efficiently converted in electricity. Organic loading rate, temperature, time, pH, carbon to nitrogen ratio are important factors to be operated in the bioreactors and still are challenges in this process to increase biogas production. It has been reviewed the single phase and two-stage bioreactors in the anaerobic digestion of food waste as well organic loading rates and the rate of methane produced.
