Biogas is one of the possible alternatives to burning fossil fuels as a source of energy!
Methane and carbon dioxide are the main components of biogas. Small quantities of hydrogen sulphide moisture and siloxanes may be present. Methane, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide are all gases that can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen. Biogas can be utilized as a fuel because of this energy release; it can be used for any heating purpose, including cooking.
How is Biogas created?
Biogas is created at Biogas Plants when biodegradable organic materials/wastes such as cattle dung, biomass from farms, gardens, kitchens, industry, chicken droppings, night soil, and municipal wastes are put to a scientific process known as Anaerobic Digestion (A.D.).
The following are some of the advantages of Biogas technology provided by Netsol Water:
1: It produces a clean gaseous fuel that can be used for cooking and illumination;
2: Because the digested slurry supplied from biogas plants can be used as enriched bio-manure, chemical fertilizers can be eliminated;
3: Because toilets may be connected directly to biogas plants, it is helpful for the environment and sanitary issues.
India's Biogas Production
Given the livestock population of 512.06 million, which includes roughly 300 million (299.98 million) total bovines, there is plenty of room for biogas facilities to be built (comprising of cattle, buffalo and yak). The cattle sector comprises a major portion of India's GDP and is expected to continue to grow. With its direct and indirect benefits, the spread of biogas technology is a blessing for Indian farmers.
By adopting two “Central Sector Schemes” under Off-Grid/distributed and decentralized Renewable Power, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy encouraged the building of biogas facilities. The following systems were in effect until March 31, 2021:
i. The New National Biogas and Organic Manure Programme (NNBOMP), which is for biogas plants with a capacity of 1 to 25 cubic meters per day.
ii. Biogas Power Generation (Off-grid) and Thermal Energy Application Program (BPGTP), for setting up biogas plants with a daily capacity of 30 m3 to 2500 m3 and a power generation capacity of 3 kW to 250 kW from biogas or raw biogas for thermal energy/cooling applications.
Off-grid Biogas Power Generation and Thermal Application Program (BPGTP)
In our country, biogas plants are a dependable source of decentralized Renewable Energy for heating, cooking, generating electricity/power generation, and thermal energy application. To promote this Decentralized Renewable Energy Source (DRES) of power generation, specifically in the small capacity range and thermal energy for heating/cooling from biogas was produced from biogas plants, ranging in size from 30 m3 to 2500 m3, operated based on the availability of required quantities of biodegradable organic waste.
According to “Ministry of New and renewable energy”, in 2014-15, the country produced roughly 20,700 lakh cubic meters of biogas, which is equal to 5% of total LPG usage. In addition, the Government is providing a large subsidy for the construction of new biogas facilities.
Netsol Water comes into play here, striving to save and recycle water and waste resources in order to address the problems and generating biogas from the waste.
