WHAT IS IT?
· It is the gas that is produced by the biological breakdown
of organic matter.
· It is produced by anaerobic digestion and the
fermentation of materials such as biomass, manure, green
waste and plant materials.
· This type of gas is made up of mainly nitrogen, hydrogen,
methane and carbon dioxide.
· These gases can be combusted with oxygen and this
