Due to an increased demand for global energy and to the depletion of fuel sources, it was necessary to search for new sources of energy named renewable energy; one of these sources is the biomass energy. This paper aims to present the ability of biogas production using the remains of grass trimming in the gardens of Near East University by a fermentation process; this biogas will be used then to generate an electric power after being treated. A new design of Biodigester was developed in order to conduct the proposed research and produce the biogas. The experimental results show that the developed Biodigester is able to produce biogas by the fermentation of grass and using some catalyzers. In addition to the design and implementation of the Biodigester, different studies using it were presented in this paper. These studies show that the use of animal waste and improving material for the fermentation process lead to the increase in the amount of methane product on the basis of a single mass of volatile material which is equivalent to 15%. Moreover, other studies and experiments using the designed Biodigester show that the use of animal waste or manure speeds up the fermentation process.
