Renewable energy production is a significant part of researches due to the environmental problems and limited energy sources. HRAS is a rapid and less energy consuming process which is resulted with high amount of sludge production. Since the activated sludge consist of dead and living microorganisms, it is not efficient to it for the anaerobic fermentation process. However, these high amount of waste sludge was promoted with organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW) in order to increase the availability of organic matter for the fermentative bacteria. Thence, solid waste management and wastewater treatment were actualized and hydrogen production rate of the OFMSW was increased.
