Currently, manyresearches are being conducted to find alternative sources as non-renewableenergy sources such as petroleum, gas, and coal are increasingly depleted.Altrnative energy sources that can be used one of them is biogas.
Biogas productioncan use organic waste such as waste, animal waste which is processed byanaerobic diggestion, and environmental waste. Biogas has many benefits thatare very useful for life now Biogas is one of thealternative energy where the way of making using materials from waste that hasmany benefits and a good impact to the environment. Biogas itself is widelyused as vehicle fuel, LPG gas replacement, organic fertilizer, power plant, andcan also be used as an alternative energy as the best solution to preventscarcity of fossil fuels on our earth.
And here is a description of theusefulness of biogas First, biogas is usedas vehicle fuel. Currently, the use of fossil energy and fuel oil for vehicleshas begun to be noticed, namely by the conversion of fuel into gas-based fuel,such as CNG or electric fuel. However, in addition to these two fuels, biogasis also one of the excellent energy to become fuel from vehicles.
Here is thereason why biogas is good for vehicle fuel. Burning is environmentally friendlyand will not increase the amount of carbon in the air, making it safe for theatmosphere. Cheaper for operational costs. Does not affect the performance andperformance of the vehicle itself Secondly, biogas isused instead of LPG gas. One of the good energy that can replace the role ofLPG is biogas.
Well-processed biogas and impurities, since biogas is basicallyderived from waste, will be very reliable as a substitute for LPG gas whichincreasingly burdensome people’s purchasing power. Of course biogas has a muchcheaper cost than the use of LPG. This will have an impact on the depressedproduction prices of domestic industries, such as catering and restaurantbusinesses, more cost-efficient cooking energy expenditures, and the transferof LPG funds for other household uses Third, biogas is usedas organic fertilizer that utilizes from waste biogas waste.
In terms ofenvironment, making biogas that comes from waste and biodegradable waste willproduce organic fertilizer which is the result of processing biogas itself.Organic fertilizer has many advantages, because it does not contain dangerouschemicals that are likely to stick to agricultural produce later. In addition,agricultural products that use organic fertilizers usually have a better andfresh taste and appearance, have better nutritional content, and leave nochemical residues that can harm the body Fourth,biogas is used as a power plant. Currently, a single power supplier, PLN stilluses diesel fuel to supply most of its customers throughout Indonesia. In fact,biogas can be one alternative fuel that can generate electricity.
Approximately1 cubic meter of biogas can generate 6000 watts of electricity per hour(Sudaryono, 2012).Biogasis one alternative way of making using materials from waste that has manybenefits and a good impact for the environment. Making biogas can use organicwaste such as waste, animal waste which is anaerobically digestion, andenvironmental waste. Biogas has many useful uses for human life. For that biogasis recommended for use in Indonesia in terms of benefits and good impact forthe environment
