Gobar Gas typically refers to a gas produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. It is a renewable energy source, like solar and wind energy. Furthermore, Gobar Gas can be produced from regionally available raw materials and recycled waste and is environmentally friendly and CO2 neutral.
Gobar Gas is produced by the anaerobic digestion or fermentation of biodegradable materials such as manure, sewage, municipal waste, green waste, plant material, and crops. Gobar Gas comprises primarily methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes.
The gases methane, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide (CO) can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen. This energy release allows Gobar Gas to be used as a fuel. Gobar Gas can be used as a fuel in any country for any heating purpose, such as cooking. It can also be used in anaerobic digesters where it is typically used in a gas engine to convert the energy in the gas into electricity and heat. Gobar Gas can be compressed, much like natural gas, and used to power motor vehicles. Gobar Gas is a renewable fuel so it qualifies for renewable energy subsidies in some parts of the world. Gobar Gas can also be cleaned and upgraded to natural gas standards when it becomes bio methane.
