Chemistry Extended Essay: Is my topic suitable?


Recommended Posts

I'm planning to explore anaerobic digestion and the production of methane from different compositions of organic food waste. I could create a small biodigester and use different feedstocks for each experiement. I was also thinking if I could get a methane gas analyzer, I could track the volume/ concentration of methane over time and do something regarding the kinetics of anaerobic digestion. The composition of the waste could be determined by CHNSO contents or % ratio of carbohydrate, protein, lipid. Is the essay viable?
