The co-digestion of cassava wastewater with swine residues was evaluated for hydrogen and methane production in separate phases. Four different dilution rates were used in the acidogenic phase. The highest hydrogen yield (HY) (1.13 mol H2/mol glucose) was achieved in the 25-50-25% dilution (percentage of swine, water and cassava wastewater). For the methanogenic phase, the effluent from the acidogenic process was used as substrate. Sururu shells (Mytella falcata) were used as support material and pH buffer to control the alkalinity of the reaction medium. The best yield obtained was 1.73 ± 0.13 mL CH4/gCOD in the hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 12 h.
