Biomethane potential (BMP) tests are used to determine the amount of methane that can be produced from organic matter. However, the outcome of such tests is not really reliable and it is not known how good these estimations are compared with biogas production from the same organic waste in full-scale installations. This project aims at doing this comparison and proposing extrapolation coefficients to link BMP test results and full-scale digesters.
