The food wastes of the Nangui Abrogoua University are rich in organic matter that can promote the production of biogas through anaerobic digestion. These wastes are favorable for the anaerobic digestion process. This study aims at estimating the energy potential of the food wastes of the University Nangui Abrogoua by the production of biogas following the process of anaerobic digestion batch. The biogas from this food waste is estimated to be 10.79 m3 or 10790000 mL over a period of 30 days. This is equivalent to an energy potential of 75.58 kWh. These results obtained indicate that the food waste of the University Nangui Abrogoua is an important source of renewable energy.
