Introducing newly Designed biodigesters for domestic and industrial use to process biosolids (organic wastes) by microbes to rapid the process. Digester gas (60% to 65% methane), ammonia and manure (boil) are the byproduct of this process. With proper treatment, this methane can be used in an internal combustion engine to drive a generator and make electricity. Also it can be used for cooking and heating purposes in rural areas. Biol consists of a mix of manure and water that has fermented in the biodigester. Biol is a liquid fertilizer that can completely replace chemical fertilizer. It can be sprayed on crops as a foliar fertilizer, or can be placed directly on the soil or into irrigation canals. Producers report an increase in crop production from 30% to 50%. In addition, biol protects against insects and helps plants recover from damage by frost. Ammonia released from this can be used for garden plants to grow. The microbes such as Pseudozyma spp. yeasts , Strains of P.antarctica , etc has more degradation activity which can degrade bioplastics . The Microbial Fuel Cell can be Installed within this digester to promote considerable amount of electricity. The purpose of this study is to determine the technical and economic feasibility of generating energy from the methane using these kind of biodigesters.
