Number of crop residues generated at large amount in agriculture can be utilized as substrate in methane production by anaerobic digestion. Greenhouse vegetable crop cultivation that adopting intensive agricultural system require the heating energy during winter season, meanwhile produce waste biomass source for the methane production. The purpose of this study was to investigate the methane production potential of greenhouse vegetable crop residues and to estimate material and energy yield in greenhouse system. Cucumber, tomato, and paprika as greenhouse vegetable crop were used in this study. Fallen fruit, leaf, and stem residues were collected at harvesting period from the farmhouses (Anseong, Gyeonggi, Korea) adopting an intensive greenhouse cultivation system. Also the amount of fallen vegetables and plant residues, and planting density of each vegetable crop were investigated. Chemical properties of vegetable waste biomass were determined, and theoretical methane potentials were calculated using Buswell`s formula from the element analysis data. Also, BMP (Biochemical methane potential) assay was carried out for each vegetable waste biomass in mesophilic temperature (). Theoretical methane potential () and Ultimate methane potential () off stem, leaf, and fallen fruit in vegetable residues showed the range of and respectively. The biomass yields of residues of tomato, cucumber, and paprika were 28.3, 30.5, and respectively. The methane yields of tomato, cucumber, and paprika residues showed 645.0, 782.5, and . Methane yield () of crop residue may be highly influenced by biomass yield which is mainly affected by planting density.
