Abstract: This examination assesses the impact of blending proportion (1, 1.5, 2 and 2.5) and chemical pre-treatment on the anaerobic co-processing of banana strips and water hyacinth. Two plans of bio-engineered methane potential (BMP) tests were performed all the while. Banana strips was blended with untreated water hyacinth in set I, and water hyacinth be pre treated before co-absorption in set II. Intent measure of bovine compost and dairy animals pee was added to every reactor as an inoculum. The anaerobic group test revealed that set II, where pre-treated banana strips and water hyacinth was co-handled, demonstrated high biogas creation and favoured nature of biogas over set I. Blending proportion 1.5 and 2 were outlined to be the ideal blending proportion for set I and II individually. Both the sets represented high biogas age than mono-processing of the substrates. In this way, anaerobic co-absorption of banana strips and water hyacinth depict a synergic activity via adjusting the general procedure. The purpose of this peculiar analysis was to scrutinize the repercussion of different mixing ratios and chemical pre-treatment on the anaerobic co-digestion process.
