The study on the effect of particles size on biogas production has been conducted. Substrates consisted of pre-treated
water hyacinth with drying and grounded to fine particles of
(0.001and 0.05 mm) and chopped water hyacinth to small
particles of (1.0 and 2.5 mm). The reactor digesters were
operated at mesophilic temperature ranges of 25 °C to 32 °C
with retention time of 23 days. Results showed that highest
biogas production occurred with the most finely grounded
substrate (0.001 mm) which recorded 0.39 liters of biogas
with 70 % CH4 followed by the grounded particles of 0.05
mm yields 0.34 liters with 66 % CH4 .while the lowest biogas production was observed from the chopped particles of
2.5 mm producing 0.24 liters of biogas with 55 % CH4. Further observation revealed that methane yields increased by
21 % when the substrates were pre-treated by grinding into
very fine particles compared with the chopped substrate. The
results suggest that small particle size favours methane yield.
