So what is Biogas?
Biogas is a biofuel and it generally it refers to the gas produced from organic matter as it is broken down by
You can build a
biogas plant for your home, community, at much larger commercial scales or a school project. Information, plans and
designs are here for a range of applications.
Biogas can be produced by anaerobic digestion or
fermentation of biodegradable materials such as biomass, manure, sewage, municipal waste, green waste and energy
crops. The biogas
produced is comprised primarily methane and carbon
When you build a
biogas plant, the gases methane, hydrogen and carbon monoxide are produced and can be combusted or oxidized with
oxygen. Biogas is currently used as a low cost fuel in many countries for heating and cooking, and is also
extracted from waste management facilities like sewage plants and landfill sites where it is used to run engines,
to generate electricity.
Biogas is classed as
a renewable fuel, and generally qualifies for renewable energy certificates or subsidies in many parts of the

and maintain it.
The other principal type of biogas is wood gas
which is created by gasification of wood or other biomass. We have a whole site devoted
gasifiers with hundreds of files downloadablefor free showing how to build gasification plants.
This type of biogas is comprised primarily of nitrogen, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide, with trace amounts of
