This review summarizes the benefits accrued with co- digestion technology. Different substrates differ in-Terms of their chemical composition and these differences lead to complications during digestion. One way in which these complications can be abated is by way of co-digestion. Co- digestion process plays a vital role also in balancing the nutrients required by microorganism for stability and performance. The potentials of generating biogas from different substrates and the role of nutrients and trace elements entrained in the substrate during the anaerobic digestion are also highlighted.
