Promoting biogas at all sectors is important to ensure efficiency.

why biogas

Biogas technology is a proven technology noted for improving sanitation, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, helping to prevent deforestation and forest degradation, producing fertilizer and providing clean decentralised energy. At least 400 biogas systems have been built in Ghana, pre-dominantly using the fixed-dome,  floating drum and Puxin technologies. 

FLOATING DRUM

Floating-drum plants consist of an underground digester and a moving gasholder. The gasholder floats either directly on the fermentation lurry or in a water jacket of its own. The gas is collected in the gas drum, which rises or moves down, according to the amount of gas stored.

PUXIN BIOGAS

The Puxin biogas digester is a hydraulic pressure biogas digester, composed of a fermentation tank built with concrete, a gasholder made with glass fibre reinforced plastic and a digester outlet cover made with glass fibre reinforced plastic or concrete. The gasholder is installed within the digester neck, fixed by a component.

THE FIXED DRUM

A fixed dome 2 plant comprises of a closed, dome-shaped digester with an immovable, rigid gasholder and a displacement pit, also named ‘compensation tank’. The gas is stored in the upper part of the digester.

OUR HISTORY

The idea of an association to represent firms, institutions and individuals involved in any form of the applications of Biogas Technology in Ghana was initiated at a meeting of actors in the biogas sector which was organised by Ghana National Cleaner Production Centre (GNCPC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Energy Commission in July, 2016 in Accra. In the meeting, members elected an Interim Committee which was tasked to lead the formalization of the Biogas association of Ghana.
