So what is Biogas? Biogas is a biofuel and it generally refers to the gas produced from organic matter as it is broken down by biological means. You can build a biogas plant for your home, community, at much larger commercial scales or a school project.
Information, plans and designs can be found at this link below. When you build a biogas plant methane, hydrogen, carbon monoxide and other trace gases are produced… but methane is the main combustible gas.
Biogas is currently used as a low cost fuel in many countries for heating and cooking, and is also extracted from waste management facilities like sewage plants and landfill sites where it refined into bio methane and used to run engines to generate electricity. Biogas is classed as a renewable fuel, and generally qualifies for renewable energy certificates or subsidies in many parts of the world.
