Abstract: The initial value problem in a kinetic model for biogas generation from banana waste is discussed. The model involves the system of non-linear differential equations which has variety of non-linear rate function. Simple and approximate polynomial expressions of concentration are derived for non-linear kinetics models in biogas generation. Comparison of the approximate analytical approximation and numerical stimulations is also presented. A satisfactory agreement between theoretical predictions and numerical result is observed for times t ≤ 25 days. The concentrations are also computed for various values of parameters.
