Abstract

Bio-gas can be generated from bio-waste materials; hence, the waste will become wealth. Renewable energy replaces conventional fuels in four distinct areas: electricity generation, hot water/space heating, motor fuels and rural (off-grid) energy services. India was the first country in the world to set up a Ministry of Non-Renewable Resources in early 1980s. In India, the realised potential of renewable energy is only 12.5 per cent of the total estimated potential of 2,49,188 MW. More than 87 per cent of the potential of renewable energy source is remaining untapped. One of the largest bio-gas plants in the world is currently being built in North West Jutland, is one of
Denmark’s most agricultural areas. The first place of achievement in India, the state is Andhra, the second place is Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu is very less level of bio-gas generation. Environmental benefits on a globe scale: Bio-gas plants significantly lower the greenhouse effects on the earth’s atmosphere. The plants lower methane emissions by entrapping the harmful gas and using it is as fuel. Bio-gas is one of the green energy items, which can pave the way for sustainable development. The slurry will definitely reduce or replace the chemical fertilizers because it has more NPK (Nitrogen, Phosphorous, and Potassium) than raw dung.
