Our dependency on non-renewable sources of energy e.g. coal and crude oil are swiftly increasing. We are nearly dependent on non-renewable sources of energy for the whole thing and created this sphere a trifling place to survive. In the financial year 2021, the mainstream four-wheelers sold in the Indian market were petrol variants, Currently, holding 76% of the market share despite the surging price of petrol. However, when we look at the graph, we determine that non-renewable sources of energy may seem to be beneficial at a time but Eventually, it's among the major reasons for environmental degradation in India. Substituting the current fuel dependency to other any other resource was impossible for India a few years back. But with the advent of Compressed Biogas (CBG) India is now headed toward uplifting its renewable sources of energy via different resources.
In an operation to make India sustainable in the context of energy, Compressed Biogas plays a decisive role. CBG(CNG) is not only helping India to be self-reliant in terms of energy but it also looks after the environmental aspect of India. CBG manufacturing plants utilize trash as their feedstock and the further waste produced by CBG(CNG) manufacturing plants (i.e. bio-fertiliser & bio-slurry) is an excellent organic fertiliser that can be used to improve soils and crop yields.
A Compressed Biogas Plant confirms optimum manufacturing and refining of compressed biogas (i.e. CBG also known as Bio-CNG) through the plant and then the final goods/output as Bio methane (Bio-CNG) is prepared to supply across various retail outlets i.e. CBG(Bio-CNG) pumps. It is an artificial facility system for turning waste into sustainable energy and fertilizers along with positive effects on the environment.
Organic wastes like bagasse (Sugarcane waste), Cow dung, Chicken droppings, Agricultural residue, Press mud, and Napier Grass are treated as intermediate goods for the compressed biogas plants. Waste for other industries is considered as goods for the green industry. Eventually, BIO-CNGs via pump will now be treated as fuel for vehicles. Biogas Plant plays a crucial role in shifting the dependency on fuel from non-renewable to renewable sources as this production unit prepares goods for the environment.
A biogas plant has five major areas that make the biogas production process possible
Reception area (Feeding)
Digester Area (fermentation tank/CSTR)
Purification Area (PSA)
Filling Area (Compression & Cascading)
Bio Fertiliser Organisation Area (Slurry Tank & Packaging)
The Reception Area: One of the most important components of the plant, the reception area or the land ahead of the entire setup is used for loading and unloading of raw materials arrived for the preparation of anaerobic digestion. Different biomass has different fermentation processes hence, depending on the raw materials used the overall length of the biogas production process varies. Using pre-treatments for accelerating the fermentation process and enhancing the production process is a common practice.
The Digester Area: A waterproof airtight container with a means of entry for biomass, the digester contains all the waste to be transformed into energy. Then, to shift the biomass periodically to enable the gases and prevent the formation of layers, agitators come into action. After the fermentation, a digester via pipe enables the digest to be removed.
Purification area: The gas holder is an airproof container aimed to collect various gases during the fermentation process. Provided a gas outlet which enables biogas to come out of the digester to get purified to CBG via a gas purification system (PSA).
Filling Area: The final good in the form of gas will now shift to the filling area. Here, the compressed biogas will be filled into cascades. These are the cylinders into which, gaseous are secured and ready to be sent to pumps.
Bio Fertilizer Area: As the final good is prepared, the waste produced by the plant transforms into two different elements, slurry (Liquid fertilizer) and Organic manure (Solid fertilizer). Our organization also looks for slurry and organic manure as these two are highly beneficial for farming. Hence, we buy back all the final goods produced by the plant.
- Impacts and Benefits
There are a number of environmental and sustainable development benefits associated with the CBG manufacturing plants.
Bio-slurry has important benefits. These include:
replace expensive chemical fertilisers, reducing the production cost of small farmers;
