    Objective: Biogas technology is being seriously promoted as an important option to meet the growing energy demand of rural areas in developing countries, particularly Ethiopia ongoing progress, nowadays, cow dung (CD), banana peels (BPs), and mango peels (MPs) promising application for biogas generation. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effectiveness and the performance characteristics of anaerobic digestion of CD mixed with fruit peels for biogas production. Materials and Methods: The study was done with three different digesters containing a mixture of varying levels of three different substrates (CD + BP MPs) labeled as digester A to C. In each digester, the substrates were mixed with the appropriate amount of water in the ratio of 1:10. They were subjected to anaerobic digestion for production of biogas under a 15 days retention period and mesophilic temperature range of 26–35°C. Results: Significant amount (43.5 L) of 60–70% methane composition, flammable biogas was produced from the dry sample mixtures of CD and fruit pills (digester-A) compared to digester-B and digester C starting from the 3rd day of the digestion period. Conclusion: The result of the present study shown that anaerobic digestion from the mixture dry sample of CD, BPs, and MPs can be formed a renewable energy production process and comfortable and easy ways of replace fossil fuel as an environmentally friendly.
