Renewable Energy (RE) sources are experiencing rapid proliferation throughout the world, with the developed countries of the world having already implemented state of the art energy generation systems. The developing nations are quickly catching up, as many innovative and novel methods of extracting energy from renewable sources are being developed. Among the multitude of applications, a significant portion of the generated energy is being used for supplying power to the national grid, transportation and generic household applications such as cooking and air/water heating. The latter being of paramount importance to rural household.
This paper undertakes a quantitative and comprehensive analysis of energy production from biogas consisting of methane and carbon-dioxide; the aforementioned biogas being extracted through the exclusive anaerobic digestion of waste collected form poultry waste. A parallel economic feasibility study consisting of load calculation of the concerned poultry farm was also conducted on the very poultry farm whose waste is being considered for. An overall comparison is then drawn between the energy generated and energy consumed with the ultimate goal being to develop a completely self-sustaining poultry farm. It is also suggested through extensive comparative studies and literature review of similar implementation, a large scale adaptation of the biogas energy generation system in Bangladesh.
