    Biogas Plant The Bio-Gas Plant produces gas from the raw materials of human excreta and cowdung. The residue obtained from the plant is used as the food of fish. It is a system to process livestock wastes into safe, high-quality, efficient organic fertilizer without exhausting greenhouse gases into the air. These gas plants also contribute to safe-keeping and clean environment by preventing bad odor and contamination of the underground. Furthermore, they are capable of generating electric power…

    kerosene for cooking. The immediate benefit from owning a compact biogas system is the savings in cost as compared to the use of kerosene or LPG for cooking. The up-front cost of a biogas system is higher than for LPG, since an LPG bottle plus a two burner stove costs only INR 5,000 (approx. USD 100) whereas the compact biogas plan plus a biogas stove costs about INR 10,000 (approx. USD 200). However, the operational cost for biogas is only about INR 2 per day if waste flour is used as feedstock,…

    Biogas Anaerobic Digester Considerations for Swine Farms in North Carolina Collecting biogas from anaerobic digestion of swine manure can benefit the environment by reducing methane emissions (has potential value for equivalent carbon credits or greenhouse gas (GHG) credits), and by providing energy, as biogas is about 60 to 70 percent methane. Methane has an energy value of about 1,000 BTU/SCF1, so biogas can have an energy value of about 600 BTU/SCF. Plug-flow or complete-mix anaerobic digesters…
