Global energy demand is getting higher, and most of this energy is produced through fossil fuels. Recent studies report that anaerobic digestion is an efficient alternative to produce biogas. Moreover, the transformation of complex organic materials into a source of clean and renewable energy reduces the emission of greenhouse gases and can produce as by-product a high-value fertilizer for growing crops. The anaerobic co-digestion is an option to solve the disadvantages of single substrate digestion system, being the chemical composition and properties of the substrates, the operating parameters (temperature, pH, charge rate, etc.), the biodegradability, bioaccessibility, and bioavailability, important parameters to be optimized. The main materials that could be used for biogas production are waste from cities, residues from the production of other biofuels, agro-industrial waste in general, agricultural crops, straws, or microalgae biomass obtained by cultivation in wastewater. However, some of these materials, specially raw materials, need to be treated to improve the biogas production. The aim of this chapter is to review the main materials that could be used for biogas production and the factors to optimize the production.
