Biogas is a carbon neutral, sustainable and renewable source of energy that can be produced and consumed without any adverse effect on the environment. Biogas has the potential to cater to the needs for cooking, basic fuel, electricity and can be upgraded to biomethane which then used as transportation fuel as well. The utilization of biogas as a fuel for thermal and engine applications and spent slurry as an organic fertilizer instead of chemical fertilizers contributes in reduction of greenhouse gas emission in both energy and agriculture sector. Biogas is a CO2neutral fuel and the increase of biogas utilization will help to achieve reduction in greenhouse gas emission. It has the potential in the context of sustainable development that it addresses the social-economic and environmental problems.

Keywords: Biogas technology, Mitigation, Climate change, Greenhouse gas, Anaerobic digestion
