Biodegradable waste is a sustainable energy resource. In coming years biogas technology can be very useful worldwide, since biogas can be obtained from biodegradable waste material. This technology is based on waste reduction and also is helpful in the clean-up process of India. In this experiment, we have made single-phase biogas set-ups by using two-liter bottles. The fermentation time of the anaerobic digestion for the efficient use of gas as a fuel is about sixteen days. In our biogas digester set-ups for waste decomposion anaerobic co-digestion process is utilized. The primary feed stock is cow dung, whereas the grass, fruit, and vegetable waste are used as co-subtracts. The pH value was maintained at the range level of 6.5 to 6.9. The output biogas yield was 1.59 ml, 1.28 ml, 1.03 ml, and 0.95 ml, within an approximate period of sixteen days. Biogas obtained from cow dung and grass waste is almost identical as biogas obtained from the experimental set-up 1 (pure cow dung). Main performance characteristics of biogas formation were presented in this paper. In order to analyze a daily biogas formation, the pH value, temperature, and hydraulic retention time were changed in this experiment.
