Abstract: This study aims to assess the economic feasibility of the biogas system in a small Palestinian poultry farm under realistic conditions by analyzing actual data which based on the primary data of the system. The results show great potential for making profit on the capital investment. The NPV, BCR, IRR, and PBP are 4,088$, 2.53, 31.1 %, and 3 years respectively. The most profitable levels were determined through cost- benefit and break-even analysis. The results of the study could be used to analyze or further develop feasibility studies of biogas systems at other farms in Palestine and neighboring countries that share similar climatic characteristics and economic factors.
