Paper Title
Perspective of Estimated Energy Generation from Livestock Dung for an Indian State Punjab
In this paper an investigation to access the available livestock dung based renewable energy source has been carried out for the Indian state Punjab. Punjab being an agriculture state has enough livestock population and correspondingly livestock dung. Estimation shows that state has 8.1 million livestock population and from that 62886 million kg of dung is produced every year. Assessment presents that the dung has an immense potential to generate 11.9 TWh of electrical energy per year through anaerobic digestion process of biogas production. About 25% of this dung is used for power generation, family type biogas plants, manure and as biofuel. The leftover of this dung is considered as waste and leads to environmental pollution. Study supports that energy production from this resource could be beneficial to meet the growing power demand of state and will help in waste management.
