Abstract

The aims of this study were, i) to determine the biophysical characteristics of the substrate using Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD), nutrient, heavy metal, Carbon to Nitrogen and Ammonia-nitrogen content analyses, and ii) to compare the biogas production between goat dung and chicken dung using industrial inoculum and traditional bokashi as catalyst. Bio-Methane Potential (BMP) test was used to measure biogas production in mesophilic condition for time duration of 20 days. The goat’s dung produced 2141 mL of biogas, higher than 1885.7 mL that of chicken dung using industrial inoculum . It was found that goat dung and chicken dung can be used as an energy source in a small scale industry as compared to the traditional bokashi where no methane gas was produced from the substrates.
