Biogas is a clean and renewable energy source which substitutes, Diesel, LPG and CNG for cooking, steam generation, transportation fuel, electricity generation, etc., Biogas is a by-product generated during the decomposition of any kind of organic matter by means of anaerobic bacteria Substrates such as manure, sewage sludge, municipal solid waste, biodegradable wastes or feedstock are transformed into methane and carbon dioxide The use of biogas as a fuel happens because it reacts with oxygen and releases energy, which is clean in nature.
Biogas is generated by decomposition of any kind of ORGANIC WASTE by means of ANAEROBIC DIGESTION.
It is Biodegradable waste such Food remains, Livestock manure, Sewage sludge, Yard waste.
Extra oxygen is available.
C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O
Products: carbon dioxide and water vapor.
No additional oxygen, closed environment.
C6H12O6 → 3CO2 + 3CH4
Products: carbon dioxide and methane.
Combustion converts methane into CO2
CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2H2O
89% reduction in emissions.
How much carbon the waste contains / How much of the waste decomposes.
Solid fraction is similar to late-stage compost, can be used as fertilizer with some further processing.
Global Warming Potential (GWP) is mass-based measure of how much heat the gas traps in the atmosphere, relative to carbon dioxide. GWP values are published by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) gas Avg. GW
