A fast increase has been seen in the use of energy acquired from fossil based and renewable resources along with the increasing population in the world and Turkey. It leads the studies to find new energy resources that fossil resources have been depleting day after day. Aydin Province that is located on 800.700 ha area over the lowlands irrigated by Büyük Menderes River is among the biggest cities of Turkey due to both animal number and area at which agricultural production is done. 363.215 ha cultivated area which is 45.3% of the total land is irrigable land. There are 70.884 units agricultural enterprises in the city and these enterprises are small and medium scale enterprises. 36% of these agricultural enterprises are the enterprises that make animal and vegetative production together, 35% of them are the enterprises that make only vegetative production and 29% of them are the enterprises that make only animal production. The unused wastes occurred after the production at these enterprises that makes animal and plant production pose a big problem for the enterprises and biogas that is a gas type having a high energy potential due to the methane gas inside it may be produced after they are fermented. In this paper, animal and vegetative production data of Aydin province will be reviewed and biogas potential of the province will be determined by calculating the waste amount occurred due to the production.
