Design of a Biogas Production Plant in Colombia Using Mango (Mangifera indica l.) Residues

Short Introductive summary

In this work, a biogas production plant in Colombia was disigned using experimental results form the codigestion of mango peels and pig manure. With the help of the experimental data and, by dint of governmental regulations and geographical locations, a realistic quantitative study was carried out which hypothesized the construction of a biogas plant. A national and international analysis of the installed capacity of biogas production plants was performed in order to set up a framework in which it became possible to calculate the geometric and physical characteristics of the tanks and reactors involved in a biogas production plant. The tanks and reactors were consequently designed and a feasibility analysis proved that the Tolima region was the best to carry out this project in Colombia.
