Before venturing into the what’s and why’s of biogas management, it is important for one to understand what Biogas exactly is. In simple words, biogas is a non-toxic, colourless, flammable gas that is made through the anaerobic digestion process with any type of organic waste.
It is essentially a mixture of various kinds of gases that are produced through the breaking down of organic matter because of the absence of oxygen.
This refers to a biological process that produces a gas composed of methane (CH4) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2). To create biogas, organic waste is put in an airtight container known as a digester. It is easy to produce biogas from a variety of raw materials such as manure, agricultural waste, plant material, sewage, food waste and even municipal waste.
