Biogas Plants

Biogas Plants

An alternative source of fuel and biogas fertilizer - a fertilizer plant

What is Biogas..?

In the absence of oxygen, the gas that is produced from bacteria generated from decomposition process of organic substances (dung, excreta, carrion, etc.) is called Biogas, which is mainly composed of methane gas (60%)

Biogas has many advantages, like…

  • Biogas is an economical and pollution-free fuel
  • Biogas is used for cooking as well as electricity
  • Electricity can also be generated by using generator from biogas
  • Economical, sustainable and pollution-free energy is generated from biogas
  • It is an alternative to conventional fuel like kerosene, wood, etc.
  • It provides an alternative to LPG cylinder

Conversion of organic waste into organic fertilizer

  • Animal dung, kitchen waste and organic waste can be used in biogas plant
  • Biogas plant slurry is a best kind of organic manure
  • The nitrogen content is three times more than the fertilizer produced in open atmosphere
Organic Fertilizer Elements Garbage Fertilizer Biogas Plant Fertilizer
N2 (Nitrogen) 0.5 to 1.5 Percent 1.5 to 2.5 Percent
P2O5 (Phosphorus) 0.3 to 0.9 Percent 0.8 to 1.2 Percent
K2O (Potash) 0.8 to 1.2 Percent 1.0 to 1.5 Percent
  • Contains all the nutrients and bacteria necessary for plants
  • Weed-free high quality organic fertilizer
  • Increases crop productivity by 25% to 40%
  • If biogas plant slurry mixed with agro-waste is buried in a pit, better quality organic fertilizer is produced compared to traditional fertilizer produced from the waste
  • Can be used as an alternative to Urea and DAP

Health Benefits of Biogas and Clean and Hygienic Atmosphere

  • Biogas being a smoke-free fuel, decreases respiratory diseases, eye infection, asthma and lung problems
  • Bacteria responsible for Typhoid, Paratyphoid, Cholera, Dysentery, skin and intestinal diseases are destroyed in biogas plant
  • The house becomes more healthy and hygienic

Reduction in workload of women

  • Absence of smoke and ashes keeps the house clean and gives relief in cleaning work
  • Gives relief from storage of cow-dung and wood in home for fuel requirement in monsoon
  • It is easier and less time consuming to cook using gas cylinder, hence saves cooking time
  • Liberates from cleaning smoke-blackened utensils

Global Environmental Benefits

  • Help reduce deforestation as the use of fire-wood decreases and consequently controls soil erosion and saves environment
  • Reduction in Carbon Dioxide (Co2) emission due to decreasing demand of mineral based fuel
  • Prevents uncontrolled emission of Methane gas
  • Carbon credit benefits to the state and the nation
  • ‘Sauno Sath, Sauno Vikas’ - Inclusive Growth with Collective Efforts
