Benefits of Biogas

Well-functioning biogas systems can yield a whole range of benefits for their users, the society and the environment in general

  • production of energy (heat, light, electricity);
  • transformation of organic waste into high quality fertilizer;
  • reduction of volume of disposed waste products;
  • improvement of hygienic conditions through reduction of pathogens, worm eggs and flies;
  • encouragement of better sanitation;
  • reduction of workload, mainly for women, in firewood collection and cooking;
  • environmental advantages through protection of soil, water, air and woodland vegetation;
  • micro-economical benefits through energy and fertilizer substitution, additional income sources and increasing yields of animal husbandry and agriculture;
  • macro-economical benefits through decentralized energy generation, import substitution and environmental protection
