Fossil fuel is still the major source of energy. However, especially ecological awareness is a driving force to utilize a biomass, as a source to produce methane gas for energy production and power generation
The composition and quality van de biogas is directly associated with the composition of the biomass, which is associated with the production method, digesters or landfills. The target of each biogas plant is to produce the highest achievable yield of production capacity of the valuable methane gas.
Biogas is obtained by the biological conversion of organic materials into methane gas and carbon dioxide, in an oxygen free anaerobic environment. Aside from these gasses, biogas also contains water and hydrogen sulfide, and other contaminants such as ammonia, hydrogen, nitrogen and remainders of organic acid fats and alcohols.
