Turning waste biogas into electricity in Thailand
Climate solution #68
One option is to control decomposition of organic waste in sealed tanks called anaerobic digesters. They harness the power of microbes to transform scraps and sludge and produce two main products: biogas, an energy source, and solids called digestate, a nutrient-rich fertilizer. The digestion process unfolds continuously, so long as feedstock supplies are sustained and the microorganisms remain happy.
When produced at industrial scales, biogas can displace dirty fossil fuels for heating and electricity generation.
