A glimpse into community and institutional biogas plants in Nepal
Biogas plants have a long and successfully history in Nepal. They provide energy for cooking and light dark rooms in a country where energy is a scarce and valuable resource. Consequently, biogas plants have been one
of the main sources of green and renewable energy. Biogas can improve people's lives and alleviate poverty, as well as contributing to a sustainable future. At the same time, biogas plants, because they are an on-site technology, have been able to avoid the difficulty of posed by the lack of good infrastructure on a national level. To achieve this objective, the following research components were undertaken: a) an overview of biogas technology research; b) an overview of community and institutional biogas plants; c) a detailed survey and analysis of case studies; and d) an evaluation and conclusions.
