9 Amazing Facts about Biogas in the UK
How many of you have ever have excessive amount of garbage in front of the house just waiting to be collected? Then you know it smells bad, accumulates toxic liquids, and is simply unattractive to look at. Finding alternatives to storing the rubbish can sometimes be problematic, especially since landfills are becoming more and more overflown and disposing of it incorrectly may negatively affect the environment.
Few of us know that this issue can be solved in a way that could also benefit our daily lives. Actually, the tossed rubbish is a treasure because it can be turned into Biogas, which can be used as a fuel for biomass boilers. Biogas refers to a mixture of gases obtained from the production of processed residual waste (food production, livestock, municipal plants, and industrial effluents).
Biogas is a renewable energy source involving no combustion, which means there are no greenhouse gas emissions. Using Biogas can also significantly reduce the amount of garbage in landfills and improves the environment. Besides this, the gas released can also be captured and turned into liquid fuel for use in heating and electricity systems. As a result, the electricity stored can be used, for example, to run the ground source heat pumps, another energy-efficient alternative to air conditioners and furnaces.
