The gaseous fuel formed from the conversion of organic waste such as dead plant, animal material, animal dung and kitchen waste is called biogas. Biogas is a mixture of methane and carbon dioxide and produces a huge amount of organic manure each year. Whereas, natural gas is extracted with petroleum deposits when crude oil is brought to the surface.
Difference between Biogas and Natural gas
The Difference between Biogas and Natural gas is tabulated below
|Obtained from shrubs, farm wastes, animal and human wastes.||Obtained in natural form.|
|Available in limited quantities||Available in large quantities.|
|Used mostly in rural areas.||Used as a source of power.|
|It is not used as raw material.||Used as raw materials in petrochemical industries|
|Decomposition of organic matter yields gas, which has higher thermal efficiency in comparison to kerosene, dung cake and charcoal. It gives no smoke.||It s supplied for household use as LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) and also used for running vehicles as CNG (Compressed Natural Gas).|
