A Pre-workshop presentation open to all who wish to learn about Biogas and it’s benefits.
WHAT IS BIOGAS?
Biogas, sometimes called “the cousin of composting,” is what you get when any organic material decomposes in the absence of oxygen (aka it’s anaerobic, vs composting which is aerobic). Biogas is made largely of methane, which is chemically identical to natural gas. Because of this, biogas is sometimes called renewable natural gas. In other words, its 100% natural, renewable energy from waste!
This presentation is for the uninitiated who know next to nothing about biogas. It is your introduction to the concept of biogas, the basic biology, and different ways that humanity has been harnessing biogas over the past several decades.
WHAT’S COVERED IN THIS PRESENTATION
1) What is anaerobic digestion (the process that creates biogas)
2) Where & how does anaerobic digestion occur naturally
3) The microbiology of anaerobic digestion
4) History of human use of biogas, including current state-of-the-art
5) Challenges in designing an anaerobic digester to produce biogas
