GENERATION OF ELECTRICITY FROM BIOGAS

 A biogas plant which is linked to a toilet or used for the treatment of organic waste can generate biogas everyday as long as waste is feed into the plant daily. The biogas can be used for electricity generation that can be used to meet the energy need of the plant.  The excess biogas generated from the plant can be used to meet the in-house energy need. 

Installing the biogas plant will help reduce the pollution which would have been caused by the used of other means of electricity generation such as; use of diesel generator and Hydro-power (results to deforestation. The gas produced can be utilized as operational fuel in gensets after it must have been passed through a gas scrubber to remove unwanted particles, moisture, gases etc. There are two ways:

The capacity of the generator to be installed will depend upon the quantity of biogas produced daily.
