Abstract:

This research investigates the synthesis of biogas from vegetable wastes through anaerobic digestion in batch reactors. The batch test was carried out for a period of 9 weeks, during which the volume of biogas produced from the reactor ad its methane content, was measured. A laboratory test with 2.5 L bio digester was operated in batch system for the study. The feed material for biogas was a mixture of vegetable wastes which include carrots, tomato, potato and cabbage. The biogas production of the period of the study decreased from a volume of 2015 ml to 235 ml in the ninth week. The methane percent at the maximum was noted to be as 60.32 percent during the second week of biomethanation.
