Research quesiton of this essay is ; ‘To what extent do the effectiveness of biogas produced from animal-sourced waste and biogas produced from plant-sourced waste, differ from each other; in terms of energy production, measured with the volume of biogas produced by same mass of animal sourced waste and plant sourced waste ?’ This essay compares the biogas production of animal sourced and plant sourced wastes. The idea came from a school trip to Mamak Landfill Gas to solve the main problem of these days ; renewable,sustainable energy. To measure the amount of biogas produced, animal and plant wastes put into bottles , balloons used as caps to bottles which means increase in the volume of balloon shows increased biogas production. To prevent heat change caused by light, a thick blanket is used like a roof to system. According to results, animal sourced wastes produce 305.92 cm3 and plant sourced wastes produce 213.89 cm3 of biogas. It also shows, amount of biogas produced is directly proportional with the amount of carbon atoms inside substance. As the t-test and standart errors show, datas were consistent. As t value is bigger than 1.734, there was obvious compelling distinction between animal and plant wastes. T-test increases the accuracy of the datas by the way. The graph also shows clearly the difference between two types of wastes and reliability of the datas. It was found that, when the amount of substance and water increased, biogas production increased. These datas scored in a constant time, 10 days and temperature stabiled for both systems. Maximum amount of biogas produced 7th day after that, the biological structure of substances started denaturation and biogas production decreases. On the other hand carrot, cucumber and chicken used as samples for individual’s daily wastes. As a conclusion, animal wastes usage would be better in biogas producing facilities.
