Our modern society is dependent on many substances and processes which are directly or indirectly responsible for the release of key greenhouse gases (GHGs) including carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. Globally, agriculture produces around 17% of total GHGs, with a further 7-14% due to changes in land use. AD produces green renewable energy in the form of biogas through the bacterial breakdown of organic materials under anaerobic conditions. It is required to introduce heat exchangers and other hi-tech machinery to biogas plants that can ultimately increases the profit…
