In order to gain the biogas production potential from pericarp of longan (Dimocarpus longan Lour.) fruits, the anaerobic batch fermentation which were divided into the control group (120mL inoculum), the experimental group (120mL inoculum and 15g Dimocarpus longan pericarp) were performed at 30°C.The results indicated that the net biogas production of the experimental group during total fermentation time of 45d was 2455mL. Further, it was calculated that the biogas yield of Dimocarpus longan pericarp was 269mL/g TS or 294mL/g VS.
