What is biogas?
Biogas is a renewable source of natural fuel, and a mixture of gases like methane and carbon di oxide.
Basically, biogas is produced via anaerobic digestion (without oxygen) with the help of anaerobic organisms or methanogen that breaks down organic waste into gas, leaving the remaining sediments as liquid fertilizers.
The production of biogas
Biodegradable waste, especially bio sludge of various domestic and food waste goes into the biogas reactors or plants. Then the microorganisms act on them to convert the biomass waste (organic matter) into biogas and leftover digestate (sludge).
A wide range of wastes from your home garbage such as animal manure, food waste, plant, sewage municipal dumps provide us with biogas.
Biogas plants and their help with biogas generation at our homes
Biogas plants generally assists you with the biogas generation from your yards, a little faster. For instance, our indigenously designed VNS Enviro’s “Bio igniter” works by the classic method of anaerobic digestion, and breaks down the organic wastes of your home into biogas. Added to this, the bio igniter gives you the leftover liquid fertilizer from the break down process. This will make a perfect manure for your garden applications.
The difference between biogas and natural gas
One of the most common queries that arise in this facet is, the contrast between biogas and natural gas.
While the former is obtained from diverse biodegradable wastes, the latter is obtained naturally. Also, based on the usage, the contrast arises. Also, the biogas we yield have high thermal efficiency and gives no smoke. Natural gas basically has its usage in households in the form of LPG. Biogas is also a perfect replacement to the natural gas for cooking purpose in your homes.
Advantages and applications of using biogas
Biogas has many efficient advantages and applications. The primary application of biogas in our households is for cooking and heating. Biogas makes cooking faster and quicker than using firewood. It does not contribute to global warming and is a free source of energy. This is an optimal source of energy fueling to our households as not only it assists us with cooking, but also by providing the leftover bio sludge that makes a perfect manure for your farm or garden!
