  1. Biogas is a clean cooking and lighting fuel that can be produced at varying scales; from small household systems to large-scale commercial plants producing several thousand cubic metres a day. Biogas can be used for electricity generation, heating, cooking, process steam and powering farm...
  2. "Anaerobic digestion, or biodigestion, involves the microbial degradation of organic materials in an oxygen-free environment. Feedstocks for anaerobic digestion include livestock manures, crop residues, culled fruit and vegetables, food waste, and other organic by-products. The process produces...
  3. This review was initiated by Dr. Morton Satin in FAO Rome, Chief of the Food and Agricultural Industries Services in the Agricultural Service Division, as a result of many requests for information on BIOGAS TECHNOLOGY suitable for Developing Countries. The generous help and collaboration of the...
  4. This study investigated the main factors influencing digester temperature and methods to reduce heat losses during the cold season in the subtropics. Four composite digesters (two insulated and two uninsulated) were buried underground to measure their internal temperature (C) at a depth of 140 cm...
  5. In China’s rural areas, most villages do not have electricity, and commercial fuels like kerosene and coal are expensive. Thus the rural population still relies heavily on biological sources of energy. Fuelwood and crop residues (mostly straw) account for 80% of rural household energy use and 54%...
  6. Opportunities for Practice Change are examples of actual activities focusing on changes in manure policies and manure management practices which have or will have apositive impact on the livelihoods of farmers and theenvironment.
  7. 2017-08-01 Faced with the challenges of smallholders in terms of agricultural inputs and the limitations of mineral fertilizer, ECHO's West Africa Impact Center has provided farmers with practical and economic knowledge.

  8. AccessAgriculture Video Zero-grazing is where fodder is cut and carried to cows which are kept in stalls. It is suited to where land is scarce. When the manure that the cows produce is mixed with water it can provide the fuel for a biogas plant. The mix of methane and carbon dioxide can be used...
  9. Biofuel Research Journal (BRJ)is an Open Access journal withcompletely Free-of-Charge publication policy. BRJ publishes high-qualityoriginal articles, review articles, case studies, book reviews, short communications, and hypotheses on the fundamentals, applications, processing, and management of...
  10. Abstract, Biofuel Research Journal, 2016 One of the greatest challenges facing the societies now and in the future is the reduction of green house gas emissions and thus preventing the climate change. It is therefore important to replace fossil fuels with renewable sources, such as biogas. Biogas...
