Biogas System Development in Mauritius

Experimental work on the anaerobic digestion of cow dung and sugar cane fibrous products (namely, cane tops and leaves, bagasse and filter mud) is reported. Cow dung proved a suitable raw material when anaerobically digested both under batch and semi continuous conditions in laboratory scale experiments. Results of the performance of a 2 m overground metallic digester with floating gas holder (SAT I model) operating in a semi continuous mode and using cow dung are given.
