Basic Principal:

Biogas typically refers to a mixture of different gases produced by the breakdown of organic material in the absence of oxygen. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste. Biogas is a renewable energy source.

Benefit for the User:

  • Natural waste treatment process
  • Very efficient decomposition
  • Net-energy producing process
  • Dramatic odor reduction
  • Biogas generation produces organic fertilizer
  • Reduced greenhouse gas emissions
  • Simple and low-cost technology
  • Healthy cooking
  • Replaces firewood
  • Saves money
  • Reduces women’s health risk
  • Biogas reduces soil and water pollution.

Contribution to Climate Change Mitigation:

6% of the population of Bangladesh has access to natural gas for cooking and/or (water) heating.* The rest of the population, mainly rural people, use biomass for cooking that causes deforestation. The fiberglass biogas plant produces biogas from manure or cow/hen dung, without burning any kind of fossil fuel or biomass so that this cooker contributes to climate change mitigation. In addition, the plant produces, as a by-product, bio-slurry (a high-quality organic fertilizer).

Regional Feasibility:

All areas, especially where raw materials are available.

How to purchase

IDCOL and partner organizations offer soft-loan and subsidy on biogas plants.
