This book presents the state of the art in biogas production using anaerobic digestion technology, with an emphasis on waste utilization/valorization. Offering a comprehensive reference guide to biogas production from different waste streams, it covers various aspects of anaerobic digestion technology from the basics, i.e., microbiological aspects to prominent parameters governing biogas production systems, as well as major principles of their operation, analysis, process control, and troubleshooting. Written and edited by internationally recognized experts in the field of biogas production from both academia and industry, it provides in-depth and cutting-edge information on central developments in the field. In addition, it discusses and reviews major issues affecting biogas production, including the type of feedstock, pretreatment techniques, production systems, design and fabrication of biogas plants, as well as biogas purification and upgrading technologies. 'Biogas: Fundamentals, Process, and Operation' also addresses the application of advanced environmental and energy evaluation tools including life cycle assessment (LCA), exergy, techno-economics, and modeling techniques.
An alarming shortage of conventional fuels such as petrol & diesel, their increasing demand and adverse effect on environment has led to the exploitation of renewable energy. By now significant role of bio-gas technology on the energy front is well established. Considerable research and dissemination efforts in the field of bio-gas technology have been undertaken all over the world in general and India in particular. The book aims at exploring the production of bio-gas from stable waste (horse dung), scrubbing of biogas and scope of applications of bio-gas in welding and brazing for rural industries. A financial analysis of the proposed pilots scale bio-gas plant from stable waste was also done.The proximate and ultimate analysis of stable waste was done. The production of bio-gas from stable waste was carried out in different type of digesters like batch digester, fixed dome and floating dome digester and associated problems were detected .
