So what is Biogas?
Biogas is a biofuel and it generally 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 is often referred to as 'gobar gas' in India, a word derived
from Hindi meaning cow dung.
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 from a digester is comprised primarily of methane, carbon dioxide and other trace gases.
When you build a
biogas plant methane, hydrogen, carbon monoxide and other trace gases are produced... but methane is the main
combustible gas. 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 refined into
biomethane and used to run engines to generate
Biogas is classed as
a renewable fuel, and generally qualifies for renewable energy certificates or subsidies in many parts of the

Another type of biogas is generated from wood-gas
which is created by gasification of woody materials or other biomass. We have a whole site devoted
gasifiers with hundreds of files which are free to download just like this site. Information and
documents show you how to build gasifier stoves, gasification plants for stationary engines, transport and
