Biogas is prepared from by-products of biodiesel and ethanol and also from the anaerobic digestion of of energy crops and organic residues. The process of rotting creates methane that can be burnt directly as a gas or can be converted into electricity or stored in canisters for transportation. Biogas is gaining traction as a versatile energy carrier with significant potential to meet growing demand in the power, heating, and fuel markets. It holds an advantageous position in terms of resource efficiency and from an environmental and socioeconomic perspective. Biogas can be purified and upgraded to a quality similar to that of natural gas so that it can be input into natural gas grids.
