Effect of the solid content on biogas production from Jatropha curcas seed cake

Effect of the solid content on biogas production from Jatropha curcas seed cake

International Journal of Global Warming 3(4): 403

Anaerobic conversion of Jatropha curcas seed cake was studied in a five-litre working volume batch reactor at 3 C. Over a 6-day operating period, a slurry of seed cake in water at a 1 : 2 seed cake-to-water ratio showed the highest methane yield of 296 litre methane/kg Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) degraded (or 156 litre/kg of Jatropha curcas seed cake added) and achieved 52% COD removal. The results revealed that Jatropha curcas seed cake treated anaerobically can be a good source of methane, with optimal seed cake-to-water ratio in the range of 1 : 2 to 1 : 1.
