    The house hold waste stream generation and treatment techniques are still limited. Waste source separation including separate treatment of graywater, brown water and black water are necessary for a sustainable integrated water management application. In this study, each of the waste, notably brown water and food waste biochemical methane potential mix ratio (1:1; 4:1) were investigated to ascertain their energy value. Without the dilution of the household kitchen wastes (100 %), the average biochemical methane potential was 484 mL CH4/gVS, when the household kitchen waste dilution rate was 50 %, the methane value was 983 mL CH4/gVS. Although household kitchen wastes can be easily biodegraded, their biochemical methane potential decreased if it was highly diluted (50 %).These variations may be attributed to the increased ratio of the inoculum to the substrate, which increased the conce..
