Biogas

The production of methane-rich biogas, which is an essential characteristic of anaerobic digestion, has been used as an important marketing tool, since the generation of energy from waste by biological means has much attraction, not least amongst those countries with a popular dislike of incineration.

The production of methane-rich biogas, which is an essential characteristic of anaerobic digestion, has been used as an important marketing tool, since the generation of energy from waste by biological means has much attraction, not least amongst those countries with a popular dislike of incineration. A cohesive discussion of bioenergy appears in a later and accordingly, a consideration of the wider implications of biogas fuel will be deferred until then. However, it is worth pointing out in the waste-specific context that, though much has been made of the apparent dual benefit of biowaste treatment and energy production, in an actual application, it is a practical impossibility to optimise both simultaneously.
