Abstract

Anaerobic digestion of organic waste can address both energy recovery and pollution control. A variety of agricultural, industrial and domestic wastes can be anaerobically digested as they contain easily biodegradable material. Biogas contains 50 -70% methane and 30-50% carbon dioxide as well as small a amounts of other gases with calorific value of about 21-24 MJ/m3. This paper reviews the history of biogas, biogas production stages and operating parameters. The anaerobic digestion configuration and potential substrates for biogas production are also considered.
