What is Biomass
Plant and animal
material, especially
agricultural waste
products, used as a
source of fuel are
called biomass.
Sources of Biomass
Whats Biomass Energy?
Biomass is organic
material that comes
from plants and
animals, and it is a
renewable source
of energy.
When biomass is
burned, the chemical
energy of biomass is
released as heat.
How Biomass Energy is Created?
How Biomass Energy is Created?
Photosynthesis Process:
Biomass is produced in the photosynthesis process which
converts the solar energy into biomass energy.
How Biomass Energy is Created?
Why We Use Biomass?

Net Carbon
is Zero.
Why We Use Biomass?
Tree and Plant absorb
62 billion ton of energy
per year.
We use 13.2 billion ton
of energy per year.
Biomass energy
The various process used
for coversion of biomass
into energy or bio fuels can
be classified as follows:

1) Direct combustion
2) Thermo chemical
3) Biochemical
Biomass Conversion
Direct Combustion
Combustion - direct
combustion of biomass is
the most common way of
converting biomass to
energy - both heat and
electricity. Compared to
the gasification and
pyrolysis it is the simplest
and most developed.
The thermo chemical
reaction can convert the
organic biomass into more
valuable and convenient
form of products as gaseous
and liquid fuels residue and
by-products etc.
These processes can be
carried out in following
Bio-chemical conversion

Fermentation is used commercially on a large scale in various countries to produce

ethanol from sugar crops (e.g. sugar cane , sugar beet) and starch crops (e.g. maize ,
wheat). The starch is converted to sugar by enzymes . After that, sugar is converted to
ethanol using yeast and ethanol is purified by distillation. In case of sugar cane , the
bagasse can be used as fuel for boilers or subsequent gasification.
Anaerobic digestion

Anaerobic digestion is the conversion of organic material directly to gas

, called biogas .Biogas is mainly composed of methane (CH4) (about50
70%)and carbon di oxide (CO2) (about3040%).
It also contains small amounts of hydrogen sulfide (H2S),nitrogen(N2),
hydrogen(H2), ammonia(NH3) and carbon monoxide(CO).
Biogas Plants
Biogas Generation:
Biogas contains 55-65% methane, 30-40% CO2, and the remainders are
impurities like H2S, H2, N2 gases.

Cattle dung can produce 0.037 m3 of biogas per kg of cow dung. The
calorific value of gas is 21000 to 23000 kJ/kg or about 38000 kJ/m3 of
gas. The material from which biogas is produced retains its value as
fertilizer or as animal feed which can be used after certain processing.
Biogas Plant Designs:
Most of the developing countries utilize two basic designs:
1. The fixed dome concept (Chinese)
2. The floating cover concept (Indian)

RE scenario of Bangladesh
RE Goals for Bangladesh
Bangladesh Government has set a target to have 3,168 MW of
renewable energy capacity installed by 2021.
10% share oF RE in electricity generation by the end 2021 .
Focus on solar and wind technology
Addition of 1,740 MW of solar power by 2021
Addition 1,370 MW of wind energy capacity by 2021
The remaining balance (58 MW) to be made up of biomass-
based power generation technologies (47 MW); biogas (7 MW)
and minihydro power projects (4 MW).

About 1,055 MW will be added through state-owned

companies. The remaining 2113 MW will be installed by private
sector companies.

First Ever Biomass Power Plant in
The facility, located in an
unelectrified town named
(Gazipur district).
The green power plant,
the first ever its kind in
Bangladesh, is a 250 kW
biomass gasification
facility that generates
renewable electricity
from abundant
agricultural residues such
as rice husks.

sugarcane bagasse as fuel

Using bagasse, the

14 sugar-mill based

Bangladesh is predominantly an agrarian economy .
Plenty of renewable sources of energy.
Huge potentials for utilizing biogas technologies.
During winter seasons, huge amounts of vegetables are
cultivated in our country.
Again huge amounts of vegetables are wasted, which may be a
source of biogas.
According to FAOSTAT (2011),
it is estimated that there are 23 million cattle in Bangladesh
which produce 230 million Kg of cow dung each day.
approximately 234.7 million chickens and 44.12 million ducks
together produces a total poultry litter of 27.8 million Kg/day.

An estimate of the total biogas potential in the country is presented below .
A. Cattle Dung
1) Total cattle population of Bangladesh = 23 million
2) Dung available = 230 million Kg/day
3) Gas that may be obtained = 3106 million m3 (Mm3)/year
4) (1 kg of dung yields = 0.037 m3 gas, each cow yields= 10 Kg dung/day)
B. Poultry Litter
1) Total poultry population (Chickens+ Ducks) of Bangladesh, (234+44) =278
2) Total poultry litter that may be obtained = 27.8 million Kg/day
3) Gas that may be obtained = 750 Mm3/year
4) (1 kg litter yields = 0.074 m3 gas, each bird yields = 0.1 Kg litter/day)

Area of Future Improvement of
Biogas Plant
Portable Biogas Plant:
India and Israel have already developed portable biogas plant.

Requires small space
It is portable
Runs on kitchen waste
Produces fertilizer
Highly efficient
Area of Future Improvement of
Biogas Plant
Energy recovery from available biomass materials through biogas
production can be a strong alternative option to supplement rural
energy demand, which can consequently alleviate poverty , reduce
higher level of deforestation, net greenhouse gas emissions as well as
use of fossil fuels.
The government should be more conscientious for overcoming
technical and commercial barriers, monitoring and fast
implementation of projects, providing funds, reducing cost, raising
mass awareness and research activities.
