.In response to the future Quebec, Canada regulations prohibiting landfilling of organic matter by 2020, EBI, a waste management company located near Montreal is considering constructing an anaerobic digester. This thesis focuses on designing a scalable prototype based on the waste types available from the existing facilities of the company and the Montreal area. Based on an extended literature review and a feedstock analysis realized for this project, the study covers the elements composing an anaerobic digestion facility, the design criteria and calculations as well as a preliminary cost assessment and scalability strategy to help EBI realize the project.
