Resilience Development Initiative :
Climate change and global warming prompted worldwide research on the use of biomass to generate alternative source of bioenergy. Rice husk is an abundant source of biomass in Indonesia. About 19 million tons of rice husk is produced annually that is often burned in the field causing air pollution. The goal of the project is to produce biogas from the anaerobic co-digestion of rice husk, food waste and cow dung. Anaerobic digestion is a mature technology currently being used in Indonesia with more than 15,000 units of digester installed across the country to treat cow dung in rural areas. The proposed study will evaluate the effect of process parameters on yield of biogas from various proportions of rice husk, food waste and cow dung. Finally, an anaerobic digester will be designed based on optimum conditions obtained from the study suitable for rural conditions in Indonesia.
