The natural resources of energy are being depleted exhaustively and uneconomically in a developing country like ours. In order to combat with such a problem, one needs conservation of energy as well as harnessing of natural resources of energy. India being a developing country, it needs to reorient its different methods of use of energy so that it can be used effectively as well as economically. Non conventional energy source like biogas is becoming very much useful clean, efficient, economical and pollution free source of energy. Setting up a biogas plant is the best way to handle the waste. This stabilizes the waste properly and makes it free from odours. Also, plenty of biogas is available for cooking and power generation for running tubewells and other appliances. Digested organic manure is also available for the crops. Biogas is not only an excellent alternative source of energy, but also a step towards stopping global warming.
