Prepared for the APO by: Dr. Suporn Koottatep, Mr. Manit Ompont, Dr. Tay Joo Hwa

©APO ISBN 92-833-7027-9


imaeGreen Productivity (GP) has been increasingly applied in the communities during the past few years. One important GP option that has been adopted in many communities in the APO member countries is installation of biogas, which serves a dual purpose of waste disposal and fuel generation – especially for household cooking. It also helps in reducing the green house gas emissions by way of reducing coal or wood burning for cooking.

The manual is developed as a practical guide for communities and households to construct, install and maintain a biogas plant as a GP option for communities. The manual  provides an Overview of GP for Community Development, which is followed by a review of various types of Bio-gas Technologies.

The core of the manual includes the practical topics of construction and Operation of Bio-gas Reactors, which is based on the experiences gained in the APO's successful demonstration projects in the region.
