Experimental Investigation on Biogas Production Using Industrial Waste (Press Mud) To Generate Renewable Energy
The present work investigates the biogas production was performed using sugarcane waste-Press mud. The laboratory experiment was conducted in floating drum type anaerobic digester capacity of 1m3 made of fiber material at continues process. The cowdung used as an inoculum of the anaerobic digester. Then raw material feeded as a Pressmud in two state one wet and dry pressmud 1:1 waste/water equal ratio and fermentation process at 30°C to 35°C was maintained in mesophiliccondition. The initial pH, biogas yield, Methane concentration, and HRT these parameters was studied in the experiments. The maximum biogas yield was 0.68m3 and methane concentration was reached in 67%. The maximum biogas production reported as 30min in mesophilic condition using inflammable time. The pH maximum level of 7.1 and end of the digestion period \pH (acid production) was decreased. HRT days calculated as 45 days.
