In this work, the progression and microbial considerations have been taking into account in the adaptation of thermophilic sludge-inoculum to anaerobic co-digestion of Sherry-wine distillery wastewater (SW-DW) and sewage sludge (SS). For this purpose, the effect of increasing concentrations of SW-DW as co-substrates with SS was evaluated by measuring biodegradability parameters, biomethane productivity and shift in microbial community. Optimal productivity occurred when 50-75% of SW-DW was used due toconsortia adaptation and more soluble compounds obtaining 0.272-0.277 L CH4·g-1 CODconsumed and TSremoval: 34.5-38.3%; TVSremoval: 51.0-53.2%; CODtremoval: 45.5-64.2%. At this both conditions, hydrolytic acidogenic bacteria reach the maximum levels improving the activity of acetogenic bacteria and acetate utilizing methanogens.
