Full Length Research Paper
Plantain/almond leaves and pig dung were used as substrates in anaerobic biodigester for producing biogas by batch operation method within the mesophilic temperature range of 20.0 to 31.0°C. The study was carried out to compare biogas production potential from plantain/almond leaves and pig dung wastes. The cumulative biogas produced from the plantain/almond leaves was 220.5 L while the cumulative biogas from the pig dung was 882.5 L. Orsat apparatus was used to analysize the gas produced. The methane component of gas from pig dung was 70.2% while that for plantain/almond leaves with algae was 72.7%. The biogas from the almond/plantain leaves became combustible on sixteenth day while the biogas from the pig dung was combustible on fourteenth day. Results showed that pig dung produced more biogas than the almond/plantain leaves within the same period.
Key words: Mesophilic, anaerobically, almond/plantain, combustible, algae.
