Oryza sativa husks and peels of Musa paradisiaca were pretreated by hydrothermal and acid fermentation using cassava mill effluent, and co-digested in a laboratory scale reactor maintained at 45 ± 2 ⁰C for 42 days. Five digesters were used for the experiment and each digester contained equal proportion of Oryza sativa husks and Musa paradisiaca in the ratio of 1:1; and cow dung (the inoculum) was added across. Substrate in Digester X (Control) was not pretreated. Digester A contained Oryza sativa husks pretreated hydrothermally; Oryza sativa husks in Digester B was pretreated with cassava mill effluent only, that of Digester C was pretreated hydrothermally before cassava mill effluent was used; while Digester D contained Musa paradisiaca peels and Oryza sativa husks mixed together before the combined pretreatment was applied. Digester X (control) generated cumulative biogas of 68mL gVS-1 while Digester C produced the biogas of 209mL gVS-1. Substrates in Digester C contained microbial load of 6.31Log10CFU g-1 while the control contained load of 5.23Log10CFU g-1. Methanogens of genera Methanosarcina, Methanocorpusculum, Methanobacterium, Methanobrevibacter and Methanothrix were isolated from the digestates with Methanosarcina sp. as a predominant methanogen. Substrate C contained total solids of 6.87 mg kg⁻¹ and volatile solid of 6.12 mg kg⁻¹ while the digester C digestate contained a total solid of 5.04mg kg⁻¹ and volatile solid of 4.49mg kg ⁻¹ on average. Therefore this experiment has proven that Oryza sativa husks and peels of Musa paradisiaca are potential substrates for biogas production.
