  • This paper critically examines discontinuous bifurcation and stability issues in model of methane gas production from organic waste via decaying process in two cases, namely sliding and non-sliding flow. The presence of certain types of discontinuities in Monod curve lead to discontinuous system and therefore the criteria for the existence and stability of equilibrium points are established. The analysis highlights the presence of several types of border collision bifurcations depending upon the effect of the dilution factor, biomass concentration and solid-liquid-gas separator efficiency, like nonsmooth fold, persistence and grazing-sliding scenarios. In addition, numerical simulations are carried out to illustrate and validate the results.
