Focus have been placed on maximizing biogas production by method of anaerobic digestion (AD) using catalysts to meet the energy needs of upcoming generation. Prior to study experiments have been conducted with mixed fruit and vegetable waste in semi batch table top reactors each of 1L capacity & essentially made of glass. Relevant kinetic study have been done using a proposed kinetic model for AD processes with 5 different catalysts. Obtained results for kinetic parameters from experimental data reveal that biogas production was maximum for a particular catalyst at respective slurry and catalyst concentration. Kinetic parameters ? (maximum specific growth rate) and K (saturation constant) are interrelated and tabulated for each case. Ultimate biomethane yield and volumetric methane production rate have been also evaluated and maximum result was again obtained for a particular catalyst at respective concentration.
