Abstract

The limited faecal sludge management can be optimized by converting the sludge into biogas. This study purposed to optimize the biogas potential of faecal sludge with food waste and garden waste. The system using Anaerobic Co-digestion on the variation 25% and 50% concentration of faecal sludge based on Volatile Solids (VS). Inoculum used was cow's rumen. The study was operated using lab-scale batch reactor 51?L for 42 days. Biogas produced at 25% concentration of faecal sludge is 0,30?m3CH4/kg with 71,93% VS and 72,42% COD destruction. Meanwhile, at 50% concentration of faecal sludge produce 0,56?m3CH4/kg VS biogas with 92,43% VS and 87,55% COD destruction. This study concludes that biogas potential of 50% concentration greater than 25% concentration of faecal sludge.
