Abstract:

Biogas is considered as a gaseous tributary of the anaerobic digestion of agro-industrial waste, a boiler, it can be burned in combustion engines to generate electricity and heat through cogeneration. Biodigesters responsible for producing energy with a content of 1 m3 of biogas (60% CH4 and 40% CO2) equivalent to 6 kWh / m3. It undergoes a purification its composition will depend not only on the technology used for the process but also on the treated substrate. Its methane composition varies between 50 and 70% and present between 30 and 40% CO2 and less than 5% hydrogen (H2) and other gases. The calorific value of biogas is associated with the composition of the methane it has. Biogas is a very versatile source of energy, it can be transformed into thermal energy through the use of process eliminating hydrogen sulfide and other contaminants from the membranes, it can be used as fuel, purifying and adding the necessary additives, it can be transformed into biomethane, a compound with characteristics very similar to natural gas. Biogas can be used as an electricity generator or as a heat producer if both sources of energy are generated, we speak of a cogeneration process, the electricity produced by generation can be injected into the electricity grid or consumed by the industry that generates the waste.
