Methanisation makes it possible to cleanse the organic load since the fermentable matters that they contain are transformed into biogas. The treatment by anaerobic digestion of an effluent of breeding makes it possible to reduce its polluting load appreciably and thus also the risks of pollution when thrown in natural environment. Moreover, the biomethanisation, stabilizes the effluent by eliminating the harmful sanitary effects (pathogenic germs) and locative (nauseous odours) which constitutes an undeniable advantage. In the same way for purification stations mud and the household refuse, anaerobic digestion is mainly a technique which combines the advantage of the energy production to that of stabilization and also of artificial manure. Thus, let us use methanisation in order to degrade pollution, the odours and wastes. The application of methanisation allows the production of biogas from organic waste which remains an energy source that is not exploited in Algeria[1].
