Abstract:

The bio-gas produced from food waste, decomposable organic material and kitchen waste, consisting of methane and a little amount of carbon di oxide is an alternative fuel for cooking gas (LPG). Also, the waste materials can be disposed off efficiently without any odor or flies and the digested slurry from the bio-gas unit can be used as organic manure in the garden. The major components of the bio-gas plant are a digester tank, an inlet for feeding the kitchen waste, gas holder tank, an outlet for the digested slurry and the gas delivery system for taking out and utilizing the produced gas. In this study, together with food waste alternate feed stocks were tried and the production of biogas was sufficient for the entire cooking need of the household and also supports the biogas based water heater in the house.


Keywords: Bio gas, Alternate feed stock, Kitchen waste, Digester.
