Biogas Generation Systems

Biogas systems use bacteria to break down wet organic matter like animal dung, human sewage, or food waste. This produces biogas, is a mixture of methane, carbon dioxide, and a semi-solid residue. The biogas used as a fuel for cooking, lighting, or generating electricity. Using biogas can save the labor of gathering and using wood for cooking, minimize harmful smoke in homes, and cut deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions. Biogas plants can also improve sanitation, and the residue is useful as a fertilizer.  A simple biogas plant has a container to hold the decomposing organic matter and water (slurry), and another container to collect the biogas. Also There must be systems to feed in the organic matter (the feedstock), to take the gas to where it will be used, and to remove the residue.
