Methane Gas Cooker: Potential of Biodegradable Kitchen Waste in Production of Methane Gas and Its Detection

Biodegradable kitchen waste has huge potential in the production of methane gas. In this study, kitchen waste such as vegetable peels and fruit pulps were collected and composted for methane gas production. Comparison was made between kitchen and agricultural waste by measuring the amount of gas produced. Arduino methane gas sensor that was embedded in a bin composter enabled measurement of methane gas production in this experiment and the absolute gas volume produced were determined using display LCD panel located on the bin composter. The outcome shows that Methane gas produced in this study can be harvested directly form bin composter and it has a huge potential as a substitute of LPG Gas.
