Determination of the energy potential of biogas in selected farm household

key words: biogas, agricultural biogas plant, methane fermentation, renewable energy sources.

Summary:

The production of biogas in Poland each year is increasing its share in renewable energy in the country, it is n excellent method of waste disposal as well. Biogas produced in the process of methane fermentation is used to produce electricity and heat. Determining the amount of biogas produced as a result of methane fermentation of available biomas generated from a selected farm household. This research disseratation was written on the basis of the available literature concerning the production of biogas and renewable energy sources the research methodology was based on the German standard DIN 38414. Using the available materials and research studies, a 350 kW piston generator was chosen; the total energy possible to be generated is approx 2806 MWh. As is clear from the foregoing, farm household under study can engage in the production of biogas,, which will provide addi-tional income for farmers.
