The main objectives of this project are:

  • To test the biogas productivity from different biomass resources as separate substrates in comparison with co-digestion technology at laboratory scale.
  • To optimize biogas production from the most promising substrates by improving some fermentation parameters.
  • To scale up the biogas production from the appropriate substrates under optimized conditions.
  • To reduce green house emissions.
  • To recycle of local resources to clean up the environment.
  • To convert of organic wastes into high quality fertilizer.
  • To improve hygienic conditions through reduction of pathogens, worm eggs and flies.
  • To disseminate biogas technology in the regional society.
