Chemical composition of anaerobic digestate and biomass ash blends as a result of storage
The dataset contains the chemical compositional changes occurred in anaerobic digestate, with and without biomass ash, simulating storage conditions during 128 days. Additionally, Sulphuric Acid (H2SO4) was added to these materials to test the effectivity on preventing nitrogen loss via acidification. Experiments were carried out in the laboratory during 2016, being measured via a combination of internal and external laboratories. The dataset provides data on chemical changes, namely: dry solids, pH, Kjeldahl nitrogen and total sulphur.

Provenance & quality
All data was generated by the authors, yet a share of it was obtained via externally accredited analytical laboratories. Data quality was checked by appropriate means (dependent on the parameter measured) but generally: reported values were above the detection limit of the method; measurements were within accepted tolerance range; samples were diluted and re-measured when out of calibration range and all calculation were checked for errors before data deemed as definitive.
