What is Biodigester?

There are different types of biodigester in use. The widely used model is the fixed dome digester buried under the ground. The fixed dome biodigester consists of digester with a fixed nonmoveable gasholder,which sits on top of the digester. In this biogas process,a source of renewable energy is generated such as methane(CH4),bio-slurry,gas for cooking,lightening and much more.

The estimated costs of biodigeter depend on different sizes:
Biodigester size (m3) Total cost (US$) Subsidy from NBP (US$) Farmer  cost (US$) Use of biogas stove duration (Hour) Use of biogas lamp duration (Hour)
