What is Biogas?

Have you ever wondered about the sustainable energy source biogas? Let us shed some light on it!

Biogas is a by-product of a natural biological process, similar to what happens in a cow’s stomach. It is produced by a process called anaerobic digestion, which breaks down organic matter in the absence of oxygen.

The main component of biogas is methane (CH4), a highly combustible gas that typically makes up 50-65% of its composition. The remaining 35 to 50% is carbon dioxide (CO2).

What distinguishes biogas from conventional gas its “bio” origin, as it is derived from renewable sources such as biowaste, agricultural waste, and even manure. When you recycle these materials through anaerobic digestion, they are transformed into a valuable energy.

But that’s not all! Once the biogas has been extracted, the remaining residue, known as digestate, is further processed to produce biofertiliser. This environmentally friendly fertiliser can be used to feed crops and increase agricultural productivity.

By exploring the potential of biogas, we can contribute to a more sustainable circular economy, reducing waste while generating clean energy and valuable resources.

Let’s harness the power of biogas and make a positive impact together!
