Abstract :

Biogas is a source of renewable, alternative and sustainable energy produced from the anaerobic digestion of organic material by bacteria. Ugandaâ??s energy matrix is dominated by biomass as a source of energy contributing about 95% of the total primary energy consumption. This is in form of firewood and charcoal, this has caused rapid depletion of forests in rural areas and an increase in price levels of charcoal and firewood in urban areas of Uganda. This project will give an overview of the biomass energy in Uganda, literature review on biogas technology, biogas technologies available in the world market, the success and limitations of this renewable technology in meeting the energy needs of Uganda, a Sub-Saharan African country whose main economic activity being predominantly agriculture. The research is necessary, as it will avail awareness to the government, agricultural farmers, readers and other stakeholders about the different biogas digester designs and the appropriate type that can be adopted in Uganda. The huge amount of waste produced by the agriculture industry in Uganda can be converted into biogas thus eliminating harmful micro-organisms. Furthermore, it will be possible to tap the variety of biogas technology benefits. The project will recommend the appropriate type of biogas digester that can be adopted by the rural farming community in Uganda whose economy is agricultural based. Different methods of attaining data amongst which include review of academic research journals, interviewing, reading of biogas books will be applied.
