Paper Title:
Design and Testing of a Mini-Plant for Conversion of Organic Waste to Biogas
  Abstract

An experimental organic waste to biogas conversion mini-plant that works by anaerobic digestion has been designed, fabricated and tested. The demonstration involved the use of primarily, a biodigester and few other components. The organic waste was made into slurry and digested anaerobically for 14 days at an ambient temperature range of 28 to 32°C. The flame of biogas generated burnt with smokeless blue flame, indicating the presence of a colourless odourless gas called methane. The biodigester achieved a conversion efficiency of 64 percent. This equipment can be used to meet a good percentage of the fuel needs in Nigeria.
