Abstract: Anaerobic microbial digestibility of three substrates [pomegranate shells (PS), mango peels and kernel (MPK) and banana peels (BP)] has been evaluated as a function of organic loading rate and conversion to methane. A direct correlation appears between C:N ratio and % lignin, and C:N ratio and % digestibility, placing BP topmost, MPK in middle and PS at the end. Accordingly, optimized organic loading rate (OLR) is: PS, 1.5; MPK, 3.5; and BP, 3.5 kg VS/day/m³.
