Bio-Gas, Answer to Fuel Crisis?

-- Bio-Gas: A Renewable Answer to the Fuel Crisis --

Today we have a special presentation from  Clark Henderson who is offering his expertise in regards to the fuel crisis the world is facing. We've covered bio-gas topics in the past on the radio show and here on this blog - so for those of  you interested in learning more you might want to scroll through the archives... and also the Vol. 2 of the Trash Talk It's Easy To Be Green series contains a section on bio-gas. Also - watch for an upcoming discussion on the Conscious Discussions Radio show titled: The Energy Dilema

Clark has a message for our readers as well and he says "Greenlane Biogas has been the world leader in biogas upgrading technology since its inception in the early 1990’s."



Biogas is a form of biofuel that utilizes a system of collecting waste from agricultural sources and processing them to produce a mixture of methane (CH4), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and ammonia (NH3). Utilising the process of anaerobic digestion, otherwise known as fermentation, waste is left to decompose artificially (with an airtight digester tank) or naturally (in landfills). The gases generated from this system are harvested as Biogas.


The converted raw material is as combustible as regular fossil fuel, which means it serves as a perfect alternative to petrol and gas. It can be used as fuel for automobiles, power generators and heating needs.


There are many sources from which biogas can be drawn. From energy crops such as corn, to sewage – each source generates a different yield. Once compressed, Biogas becomes even more versatile as biomethane. Biomethane is the refined version of Biogas and is safer for large-scale, commercial consumption.


Biogas is the safer, socially-responsible option for the environment-conscious. Human society is facing changing climates and eroding landscapes, after centuries of exploiting non-renewable resources – biogas is the emerging alternative, and for good reason. Moreover, biogas is extremely cost-effective because it can be extracted from many preexisting CO2-emitting sources.


In comparison to fossil fuels, biogas is a cleaner, greener alternative. It is also easier to obtain than coal, natural gas or petroleum, as it employs very basic processes. The other advantage with Biogas is that it can’t be depleted, unlike fossil fuel. Peak oil has been exceeded – evidence has established that humans are exhausting fossil fuel reserves precipitously, and that supply will dwindle away to nothing while demand soars – within the next fifty years. A number of alternatives have been explored (or are currently under development). Biogas currently stands as the most realistic substitute for fossil fuel, based on cost, ease of production and versatility.


If you are concerned about the state of our shared environment, you need to try out Biogas. There has never been a better time to make changes to your fuelling options. Jump on the wagon and experience the difference with Biogas.
