Bandung City is one of the big cities in Indonesia that grappled with waste problem. There is 1,500 ton of waste produced daily, of which 65% is organic. In addition, the water content of the waste could reach 80% during rainy season, given that the waste is commonly collected in open space before transported to the final disposal area. In order to tackle this issue, the municipality of Bandung has started to implement anaerobic digesters to treat kitchen waste since 2013 in an attempt to reduce organic waste. There are three scales of bio-digesters that have been implemented: city 2 ton, communal (20-1000 kg) and household scale (20 kg), which comprise of 1 unit, 15 units and 100 units respectively. This study evaluate the efficiency and biogas productivity of each bio-digesters type. We analyzed 30 unit and 14 unit of household and communal biodigesters respectively. The waste input, slurry output and biogas production were estimated based on average of daily basis. Both the input and output of the biodigesters were characterized (TS, VS, COD) to gain further understanding. This study provide facts and figures to improve the further implementation of household bio-digesters in Bandung City.
Key words: biodigester / household scale / communal scale / kitchen waste / efficiency
