The methane yield and overall biogas generation reduce drastically in the winter and summer season. The Biogas plant operators reported better results with the co-digestion of the municipal solid waste (MSW) with cow dung in changing weather conditions. In this research work the quality and content of methane in biogas generated from biogas plant is improved by co-digestion of MSW, cow dung along with the urine with better carbon to nitrogen (C/N) Ration. We took number of experiment using different ratio of MSW and additives to improve biogas. Rigorous experimentations concluded that the co-digestion of the MSW, cowdung and urine in the proportion of (55:35:10) with equal amount water in a portable bio digester for anaerobic digestion results into better methane production with maintaining C/N ratio and reducing time duration for flammable biogas production.
