ABSTRACT
With the increase in population, the amount of food waste generated is increasing exponentially. Anaerobic digestion can serve the purpose of managing organic waste in an eco-friendly way. Microorganisms play a vital role in the process of anaerobic digestion. In this work, the effect of anaerobic digestion was analyzed using two organic cultures- Cow Dung and Horse waste which was in turn compared to an Industrial Culture with regards to the biogas produced over a cycle of 14 days. Between the two organic cultures, the volume of biogas produced by Horse waste was 35,366.03 cm3 which compared to the biogas produced by cow dung was considerably large. The use of Horse waste as potential biomass has the capacity to produce biogas which can be utilized as a biofuel. The experimental data were evaluated using mathematical models like the Modified Gompertz Model, Logistic Model, and First Order Kinetics Model. Of the three models used, Modified Gompertz Model and Logistic Model gave a good fit for the experimental data with 0.98 and 0.97 respectively as the Coefficient of Determination (R2). While the First Order Kinetics Model underperformed with an R2 value of 0.68. The Modified Gompertz gave accurate results which thus validated the experimental data.
