Abstract

To achieve a functioning and stable process with high methane production it is important to create and maintain a beneficial environment for the activity of bacterial consortia of suitable species. Therefore, the present study was carried out to isolate methanogen from termite gut and analyze its role in biogas production. The biogas production was carried out in a pilot scale batch reactor for 30days using poultry waste as a substrate. Morphological, biochemical characterization and molecular identification has been done tothe isolated methanogen. The growth of isolated methanogen was tested under different pH, temperature and different substrates. The physico-chemical parameters such as pH, temperature, Chemical oxygen demand and total solids were measured in the interval of 10 days. Biogas production was analyzed between the control and treated biogas tanks in order to identify the effectiveness of biogas production.
