The gas generated by anaerobic fermentation of organic wastes is called biogas. Since it contains methane, it can be burnt and so it can be used as an alternative energy source. The production of biogas is an anaerobic treatment process, it is important to understand the basic biochemistry and microbiology of anaerobic systems. This study demonstrates the kinetic study to find out the best microbial kinetics which will be necessary for the design of an anaerobic fermenter. For this purpose, chicken manure and chicken manure with inoculation culture were used. Experiments were operated under mesophilic conditions in laboratory type glass fermenters each having a volume of ten liters.
