Exploring the Role of Biogas in Regenerative Agriculture

Biogas Role in Regenerative Agriculture

In part 4 of Agrihub’s 6-part video series, Host Dan Cloutier, Director of Regenerative Agriculture, explores the intelligent response towards Biogas.

Biogas is a type of renewable energy produced by the breakdown of organic matter, such as agricultural waste or sewage, in the absence of oxygen. Biogas is produced through the anaerobic digestion of organic matter, such as manure or crop residues. This process captures methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and converts it into a usable form of energy, such as electricity or heat. Biogas can also be refined and upgraded to natural gas standards, making it a potential replacement for fossil fuels. In addition to providing a source of clean energy, biogas production can also reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help to manage waste.

Biogas plays a key role in regenerative agriculture as it is a source of renewable energy. In addition to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the use of biogas can also improve soil health and fertility by returning the nutrient-rich digestate to the land as fertilizer. Overall, biogas can help support sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices by providing a source of clean energy and improving soil health.

Here are the key topics covered in part 4:
