Of course there are other methods, some people prefer to not use detergent, and instead break cells physically. there are machines for that. But in the lab most people use lysis buffers, because they are cheap. RIPA is really strong, and honestly it is not my favorite either. I used CHAPS buffer for some time, and then for my fractionation studies I used digitonin buffer. You can study different types of detergents at Wikipedia. I'd recommend you to study them carefully, it's important to know their differences.
1000 L is very large volume though, it's like 1 ton. it's a pilot scale. Even if you use lysis buffer you need to centrifuge that 1000 L to get a clear supernatant. that would need a huge centrifuge. I would also think for an alternative if I were you. I will check this and let you know because I have never lysed this many cells.

This one claims they can even scale this up to industrial scale:
But I found this one more interesting, it works by nitorgen decompression:
chemical and enzymatic methods would be costly for large-scale cell disruption, therefore companies use alternative methods. However they also have disadvantages, one of which is temperature rise.

Actually, both are acceptable. Usually one would use lower case, but litre is the exception, where upper case can be used when concerned about mixing up a 1 and an l. And also, most countries spell it "litre". I'm pretty sure it's is just the Americans who use "liter".
