Shirdi Biogas Plant

Biogas is the outcome of anaerobic digestion of bio-degradable materials, and is a mixture of gases such as methane, carbon-dioxide and a very small amount of hydrogen sulphide and nitrogen. Of these, only methane is inflammable. Biogas plant is a device in which biodegradable organic matters are anaerobically digested and the gas produced is stored.

The components of biogas are:

Substances Symbol Percentage
Methane CH4 50 - 70
Carbon Dioxide CO2 30 - 40
Hydrogen H2 5 - 10
Nitrogen N2 1 - 2
Water vapour H2O 0.3
Hydrogen Sulphide H2S Traces
