The present paper aimed to review the anaerobic co-digestion of food waste with sewage sludge by presenting the fundamental concept of anaerobic digestion, including the types of bacteria involved in anaerobic digestion at first. The ultimate methane yield observed from different laboratory setup also included. The electricity generation from the full-scale co-digestion plant was also presented and it showed the plant product electricity efficiently. The discussion on substrate characteristics, inert impurities, additional process and biosolid management were included to give an understanding on the challenges and opportunities to conduct the co-digestion study or to run the full-scale co-digestion plant.
