1997) explained compost as a stabilized organic waste (compared to fresh waste and, sludge) that provides more compounds which are resistant and will be hydrolysed slowly by enzymes. Stainer et al. (1998) proposed composting as a natural biological process, which can also be defined as the controlled decay of organic matter in a warm moist environment by the action of bacteria, fungi and other organisms. Lung et al. (2001) defined composting is a process which Composting involves the accelerated degradation of organic matter by microorganisms under controlled conditions, in which the organic material undergoes a characteristic thermophilic stage that allows sanitization of the waste by the elimination of pathogenic microorganisms.

It is a process found in many naturally occurring anoxic environments including watercourses, sediments, waterlogged soils and the mammalian gut. It can also be applied to a wide range of feedstocks including industrial and municipal waste waters, agricultural, municipal, food industry wastes, and plant residues (Fig. 2). Tilche and Malaspina (1998) showed an estimate of the biogas potential of several wastes, among them solid ones. Biogas production rate against time is shown in the figure, Fig.
