What is biogas

Biogas is a type of renewable energy that is produced from organic matter such as food scraps, animal waste, and agricultural residues through a process called anaerobic digestion. Anaerobic digestion is a biological process where microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, producing biogas as a byproduct.


Biogas is primarily composed of methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2), with small amounts of other gases such as hydrogen sulphide (H2S) and traces of water vapor. It can be used as a fuel for heating, electricity generation, and as a vehicle fuel. The organic material used to produce biogas is typically called feedstock, and the process of producing biogas is known as anaerobic digestion.


Biogas is considered a renewable energy source because the organic materials used to produce it can be replenished naturally. It is also considered a sustainable energy source because it helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by capturing methane, a potent greenhouse gas, that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere during the decomposition of organic waste.
