The study on pH control at the themophilic solubilization (pretreatment process) was investigated in order to improve the methane gas production of two phase anaerobic digestion of food waste. From a batch experiment, it was observed that the solubilization efficiency was increased from 26.2% to 47.1% and 55.6% by the pH increament from 4.20 ± 0.40 (without pH control) to 7.00 ± 0.50, and 12.00 ± 0.50, respectively. However there was immaterial increase (8.5%) in solubilization efficiency when the pH was increased from 7.00 ± 0.50 to 12.00 ± 0.50. The two phase anaerobic digestion system was operated for laboratory scale experiment under the solubilization condition of pH 4.20 ± 0.40 (Run1) and 7.00 ± 0.50 (Run2). Higher soluble chemical oxygen demand (SCOD) and total volatile fatty acid (TVFA) concentration were observed in Run2 throughout the system resulted by the solubilization effect at the pH 7.00 ± 0.50. The TVFA concentration in acidogenic reactor was 18.4 g/L which was 1.8 times higher than the result of Run1. Consequently the methane gas production was enhanced to 0.333 L/g VS in the methanogenic reactor, which is 18% higher than the result (0.282 L/g VS) of Run1.
