Studies on biochemical changes during anaerobic degradation of tomato processing waste (TPW) were carried out both in batch and semicontinuous modes of digestion. Around 65% of hemicellulose and 50% of cellulose components of TP W were degraded in both processes. Although 70% of protein was degraded in the batch process only 3.5% was degraded in the semicontinuous process. In contrast, lipid was degraded to a greater extent in the semicontinuous process than in the batch process. These data suggest that lipid degradation occurred through biohydrogenation arid/3--�oxidation mechanisms in both processes. The kinetics of degradation of carbohydrates, lipids and proteins and their further conversion to volatile fatty acids and methane in both processes are discussed.
