BIOGAS

Biogas or anaerobic digestion is a natural form of waste-to-energy that uses the process of fermentation to breakdown organic matter. Animal manure, food scraps, wastewater, and sewage are all examples of organic matter that can produce biogas by anaerobic digestion. Due to the high content of methane in biogas (typically 50-75%) it becomes flammable, and therefore produces a deep blue flame which can be used as an energy source.

By converting organic waste into energy, biogas is utilizing nature’s elegant tendency to recycle substances into productive resources.

BIOMASS TO ENERGY PLANTS

This process involves renewable organic materials, such as wood, agricultural crops or wastes, and municipal wastes, especially when used as a source of fuel or energy. Biomass can be burned directly or processed into biofuels such as ethanol and methane. An example of biomass energy solution is using plant materials that produce electricity with steam.

SOLAR POWER PLANTS

Rooftop solar panels rely on the ability of solar cells to harness the energy of the sun and convert it to electricity. It is a small, square-shaped semiconductor that is made from conductive materials such as silicon. When sunlight strikes the solar cells, it induces chemical reactions that release the electrons, thus generating electric current.
