Bio-gas is one of the sources of renewal energy. The use of Bio-gas in developing countries like Nepal needs high investment for
plant construction, well trained technicians and good post-installing services. The fast rate of forest destruction and low rate
of reforestation has simultaneously reduced the availability of firewood. So, Biogas is considered one of the cheapest renewable
energies in rural areas in Nepal. Production of Biogas would not only save firewood but also be beneficial for integrated farming
system by converting manure to an improved fertilizer for crops. Biogas system also helps in elimination of smoke in home.
Biogas is closely related with ecological sanitation also. To some extent, problems of energy shortage have been solved and
environmental management and ecological protection have been promoted with the technical development of Bio-gas.
With the global pressure to reduce GHG emission Biogas technology in Nepalese society is gaining popularity. The Biogas
have significant potentiality of carbon mitigation, which potentially reduce GHG emission through replacement of kerosene or
Biogas technology in Nepal has changed the Socio-economic status of rural people specially women. Construction of Biogas
has saved their time in burning firewood. They are able to participate in social work.
So, Biogas seems to be an ?
