What is a Bio-Gas? A guide to beginers :

Natural Resources


Bio gas is a naturally produced gas obtained from the decomposition of organic waste. Organic waste such as food scraps and animal waste when breaks down in an oxygen free environment they release a blend of gases, primarily methane and carbon dioxide.


This process of producing bio gas is also known as anaerobic digestion (Anaerobic digestion is a series of biological processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen)

All organic wastage such as animal wastage, food scraps, waste water and sewage are all capable for producing gas by the process of anaerobic digestion. Due to high content of bio gas, it is combustible and therefore illuminates a deep blue frame and can be used as a natural source of energy

The Ecology of Bio Gas

Bio gas is known as environmental friendly source of energy because it mitigates two of the major environmental issues simultaneously:

  • The prevailing global wastage leads to execution of dangerous gas i.e methane each day
  • The dependence on fossil fuel in order to meet the global demand for energy

When we are using this organic wastage in producing bio gas we are protecting the nature by preventing it from soil pollution, water and air pollution that have been a major problem of current environment.Moreover bio gas usage doesn’t requires fossil fuel extraction to produce energy. Instead biogas converts the problematic gas into a much safer form which benefits in creating energy.

Biological breakdown

Now let us understand how this bio gas is produced from the organic waste. To produce this bio gas , organic matters ferments with the help of bacterial communities. Four stages of fermentation converts organic wastage  from initial composition to bio gas state.

  1. The acideogenic bacteria convert sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids.
  2. At the third stage the acetogenic bacteria convert the organic acids into acetic acid, hydrogen, ammonia, and carbon dioxide, allowing for the final stage- the methanogens.
  3. The first stage of the digestion process is the hydrolysis stage. In the hydrolysis stage insoluble organic polymers (such as carbohydrates) are broken down, making it accessible to the next stage of bacteria called acidogenic bacteria.
  4. The methanogens convert these final components into methane and carbon dioxide- which can then be used as a flammable, green energy

Advantage of Bio Gas

Free medium of energy

Subtraction of indoor air pollution and deforestation

Curtailment of workload in collecting firewood and in cooking

Limited affair skills or maintenance required

Devote to contracting the discharge of gases that grant to global warming

Deforestation and soil erosion can be minimize

Cooking on biogas is expeditious and effortless than cooking with firewood

You’re energetic about developing products of the soil or raising animals and have enough involvement to begin cultivating. However, while energy and experience are as critical to a fruitful ranch as sound soil, starting agriculturists require more to grow an effective homestead—simply ask the ranchers with a few developing seasons in the books and offer out group clamoring for their meats, eggs and create at the agriculturists’ markets.

Tired of adulterated Vegetables? Start an Organic Garden at Home! (Planting and Maintaining Your Garden)

A well-maintained garden is a healthy garden. Only a garden that is maintained produces edible fruits and vegetables as well as beautiful flowers. Maintaining the garden also improves the desirability of the property. A neglected garden produces weeds and fat garden pests.

Tired of adulterated Vegetables? Start an Organic Garden at Home! (Making of Organic Soil)

Starting to build a new garden isn’t difficult. Most people begin by going out into their yards with a shovel or garden tiller, digging up the dirt and putting in a few plants. Following the organic and natural methods, add a little mulch or compost, and you’re well on your way to make good soil for your homegrown vegetables. But in the long run, the success of your garden depends on making healthy garden soil. The more you can do to keep your soil healthy, the more productive your garden will be and the higher the quality of your crops.

Tired of adulterated Vegetables? Start an Organic Garden at Home! (Creating Your Garden Site)

Organic gardeners grow healthy, high-quality foods and flowers without using any synthetic chemicals. Organic methods are healthier, better for the environment and wildlife, and are less expensive because there are no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides to buy. All of this is accomplished by working with nature, instead of against it. Best of all, you can be an organic gardener with only a few square feet of sunny space for your garden. Done right, established organic gardens can be easy to maintain.

We may bend the human laws but cannot resist natural laws

Nature is that benevolent form of governance, which makes this earth inhabitable for one of the most intelligent species ever evolved. However, with the advent of rapid technological development era, this species has forgotten its roots, duties, and responsibilities. The discussion is about the interference of greed and benevolence. How it impacts and the repercussions involved.
