Biogas typically refers to a gas produced by breakdown of organic matter in the absence of
oxygen. Organic waste such as dead plant and animal material, animal feces, and kitchen
waste can be converted into a gaseous fuel called biogas. Biogas originates from biogenic
material and is a type of bio fuel.
Biogas is produced by the anaerobic digestion or fermentation of biodegradable materials such as biomass, manure, sewage, municipal waste, green waste, plant material, and crops.Biogas comprises primarily methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes.
