Abstract The biochemical methane potential and composition of sugar beet pulp silage were investigated using samples taken from six different depths in both open and closed silos height 3.6 m. The biochemical methane potential BMP of pulp silage in open silos ranged from 337 to 420 normal litre NL CH4-kg volatile solids VS, while the BMP of pulp silage in closed silos varied between 411 and 451 NL CH4-kg VS. The biochemical methane potential peaked at a depth of 1.45 m with 420 NL CH4-kg VS for open silos and 451 NL CH4-kg VS for closed silos. The ethanol concentration and biochemical methane potential showed the same trend with depth throughout the silos. The energy loss correlated to the loss of volatile solids, and the depths described a linear relationship between them for both the open and closed silos R2 = 0.997 for the open silo and R2 = 0.991 for the closed silo. The energy potentials and composition of beet pulp silage were highly stratified and there was a risk that the silage samples were not representative in investigations of biomass quality for energy production.
