Biogas

  • Can be farm-based or municipal based.

  • Farm-based systems allow closing of the nutrient cycle, preventing valuable nutrients from leaving, creating a useful byproduct.

  • Kill pathogens and odours converting methane to carbon dioxide. Methane is a greenhouse gas, 21 times worse than carbon dioxide.

  • Uses reciprocating engines.

  • With biogas, heat energy is produced in addition to electricity. Combined heat and power (CHPsystems, also known as cogeneration, generate electricity and useful thermal energy in a single, integrated system.
