Anaerobic Digestion Plant BiogasThe term Biogas refers to the mixture of gases (mostly Methane, Carbon dioxide and Nitrogen) that is produced a result of a biological process called Anaerobic Digestion in which organic matter is breakdown in the absence of oxygen.
The Anaerobic Digestion is a process that can be used for industrial purposes to produce a biofuel (Biogas) from biodegradable material such as non-lignocellulosic biomass, organic wastes, oil, glycerin…
Biogas can be used to replace natural gas virtually in any industrial application. Since the carbon in biogas comes from plant matter that fixed this carbon from atmospheric CO2, biogas combustion (unlike gas natural) is carbon-neutral and does not add to greenhouse gas emissions.
