Abstract

Availability of electricity is one of the basic necessities in rural areas. In an energy-deprived country, there is a need for new and workable development of good quality energy generation systems to meet the economic demands because of population increase. Most of the rural areas are facing wastage control and dumping issues because of this increase in population. Furthermore, the rural areas are also facing severe energy crises of electricity unavailability or low voltages. Anaerobic Digestion is basically a practical technology that does not only resolve the issue of waste disposal, but is also helpful in producing energy through these wastes. The major focus of this research work is the provision of a feasibility report that will aid in the introduction of anaerobic digesters in rural areas to minimize the electricity burden. With proper use of anaerobic digesters, quality energy can be made available for domestic use, thereby contributing an overall decrease in the amount of load-shedding experienced by rural people.
