Gobar Gas the Benefits of Gas from Dung

Gobar gas is also known as “Bio gas” or simply “biogas”. Its main component is animal dung (gobar – India) along with some other organic matter like dead remains of plants and animals. It can be used to cooking, electricity generating and heating purposes. It is proving to be a very cost-effective and environment-friendly alternative fuel […]

Basic Anaerobic Digestion – How Does Anaerobic Digestion Work?

Anaerobic digestion (AD) is in-truth an unhelpful name for the basic age-old natural process that produces renewable energy as heat and biogas, and natural crop fertilizer. That is basic anaerobic digestion, and how the AD (or fermentation) process works. The following video is a very popular video which explains how AD works: A common challenge […]

Biogas Production Process Dairy Farmers Selling Herds to Biodigest Grass

Biogas production from grass is a proven viable process. Today (2019) many UK dairy farmers have not only considered selling their herds, they’ve done just that. Instead of cattle for milk, they are simply growing grass for direct feed into an anaerobic digestion plant, and storing silage for winter use. This makes good sense in […]

Mass extinction in 2100 - Decarbonizing through biogas production.

Reduce Mass Extinction in 2100 by Enabling Biogas Decarbonization Now

Concerned about accelerating mass extinction in 2100, and subsequently?  Read this to find out how maximising biogas production now is an essential tool towards the decarbonization of Europe. By decarbonising quickly the benefits accrue over the years and provide much more benefit in reduced temperature rises, than by doing this later. Read the following Press […]

Biogas GCSE – BBC Bitsize Teaching and Course Content Queries?

Anaerobic Decay, Methane Gas and Biogas Generators are all topics students learn in the UK Biogas GCSE student curriculum. Here they are discussed from the point of view of a UK biogas expert. Parents: Did you know that biogas GSCE content is being taught in UK schools?  Yes, it is. It is good news that […]

Pipeline Quality Gas and the Benefits of Biomethane Gas to Grid

The acceptance of biogas upgrading technology which purifies raw biogas to Pipeline Quality Gas (natural gas pipeline quality) and enables AD plant operators to inject biomethane gas to grid is rising. Benefits of Upgrading to Pipeline Quality Gas Once biomethane gas to grid is accomplished, the biogas plant operator gains not only from a higher […]

Optimized biogas production would reduce climate change plus many other benefits.

Biogas Potential is Too Small to Make a Difference – Myth Busted! WBA Report Shows

How large is the biogas potential in terms of energy output? Can there ever be enough anaerobic digestion plants to really make enough of a difference to significantly reduce global carbon emissions? The answer is : Yes! Biogas’ potential is substantial. Over the years many have even said that; “It’s not possible to make enough […]

Anaerobic Digestion of Whey – The Proven Biogas Technology Solution

Disposing of unwanted whey from commercial dairies, was once a considerable problem. But, that was before recent developments in biogas plant technology. The Problem with Whey Farmers can use only limited amounts of the nutrient-rich liquid. If they put too much of the whey on their land, the mixture will run off into nearby waterways, […]

Biogas in India – Agricultural AD, Community AD and in the Home

Biogas in India so far, has been largely a story of small agricultural, community scale anaerobic digestion plants, and home-based biogas creation. This has been mostly for cooking use in the homes of the biogas plant owners/ communities. The adoption of anaerobic digestion throughout India is required for: better utilization of renewable energy resources efficient […]
