Waste is a material that no longer serves a purpose and so is thrown away. In some cases what one person discards may be re-used by somebody else. All wastes is particularly hazardous. If not carefully disposed of, it will have an impact on the environment, whether it be unsightly litter in urban streets or contaminated air, soil or water. But what is equally important about waste is that it is recyclable.

For example, if all human, animal and organic wastes are recycled, we can save energy and fossil fuels and can keep the river, sea and ocean free from dumping wastes. Therefore, time has come when we have to look at the waste not merely as an environment polluter but a recyclable material of great potential and energy saver.

In cities, a majority of the people use LPG or kerosene for cooking. The immediate benefit from owning a compact biogas system is the savings in cost as compared to the use of kerosene or LPG for cooking. The up-front cost of a biogas system is higher than for LPG, since an LPG bottle plus a two burner stove costs only INR 5,000 (approx. USD 100) whereas the compact biogas plan plus a biogas stove costs about INR 10,000 (approx. USD 200). However, the operational cost for biogas is only about INR 2 per day if waste flour is used as feedstock, and can be zero if the plant uses only food wastes. This is much cheaper than LPG, which costs about INR 30 per day, even with the current subsidy of 50%. Biogas can easily replace 50% of the LPG used by a family.
Methane burns with a blue flame, without producing any smoke or soot. It is therefore an environmentally friendly cooking system. Further reductions in pollution and energy use arise from not having to transport LPG cylinders to be re-filled. For a typical urban household, biogas…...

...Biogas production in Pakistani rural areas Introduction and Background Energy in the form of gas or electricity has become an essential part of global world. The economic growth will be simulated due to the presence of sufficient quality and quantity of electricity at affordable prices. The history about biogas plants goes us back to ancient China and Persia. Millions of bio energy plants have been installed in developing countries like India, china, Nepal etc. In the era of 1950’s small biogas plants have also been installed in India, now these plants are also installing in poor rural areas. In the 19th centenary, the covered sewage tanks were being used by china to generate power energy. The 1st plant of biogas was built in 1859 at the Bombay in the India by Panhwar. 30million rural households in china that have biogas digesters, these rural areas have many benefits such as saving fossil fuels, saving time, protecting forests, saving money, saving cooking time, improve hygienic conditions, improving the rural quality of life, reducing water and air pollution(Prabhu et al.). Biogas is a kind of bio-fuel and it is derived from biogenic. Biologically break down of organic materials in the absence of oxygen is referred to as Biogas. Organic wastes include kitchen-wastes, dead-plants, animal-dung etc, these organic wastes are converted into biogas. Pakistan has one of the biggest unexploited coal and biogas resources.

...development of energy supply. Production of biogas provides a versatile carrier of renewable energy, as methane can be used for replacement of fossil fuels in both heat and power generation as vehicle fuel. Biogas fuel production from blends of biological wastes such as Cow rumen liquor (CL), Poultry droppings (PD), and Goat Faeces (GF) with Maize cobs (M) were studied. 20 g of each inoculum was mixed with 100g of degraded maize cobs in the first three digesters while the fourth contained CL 10g, PD 10 g, and M 100 g. 100 g of M alone in the fifth digester served as the control. The blends were subjected to anaerobic digestion for 10 days on the prevailing atmospheric ambient temperature and pressure conditions. Physiochemical properties of the blends such as moisture content, crude protein, ash, fat, crude fibre, carbohydrate content, C/N ratio, and pH were also determined. Results of the daily performances of each system showed that maize cobs (M) alone had cumulative biogas yield of 1.50 cm3 while those of the blends (MCL, MPD, MGF and MCLPD) were 6.11 cm3, 3.05 cm3, 2.50 cm3, and 63.00 cm3 respectively, pH and C/N ratio affected the biogas yield of the systems significantly. These results indicate that the low biogas production from maize cobs can be enhanced significantly by blending with cow rumen liquor and poultry droppings.

...till date: 09 9. Experiment on Biogas production for Lovely University Hostel mess using food wastage (starch and sugar) along with Algi from nearby marshy area. 2 ABSTRACT There has been many successful efforts in the past to produce biogas from cow dung slurry. Thousands of biogas plants have been installed in India and possibly abroad to say no to conventional energy resources. Afterwards there were experiments to mix cow slurry with food waste, paper waste and leaves poultry farm waste. We are going to use existing knowledge to make hostel messes energy efficient and moreover check the performance of the plant adding Algi from nearby marshy lands(easily located in village areas in India). This will help save lot LPG needed and also reduce environment hazards of land filling organic waste available in huge quantity in LPU. INTRODUCTION All over the world efforts are at their maximum level to decrease the dependency on conventional fuels giving way to green energy based upon renewable energy resources. Though LPG is used in all the hostels in Lovely Professional University (LPU) but we thought of utilizing the huge quantity of food waste coming out of hostel mess on daily basis. There are around more than 12,000 students staying in the hostels and every hostel have their own mess. Making biogas out of this would not make the messes energy efficient but also reduce the environment hazards as a result of decomposition of organic waste. Biogas production requires anaerobic......

Pro Choice or Pro Life

...ABORTION PRO CHOICE OR PRO LIFE April 11, 2013 PROFESSOR DANIEL HAYNES PHI 103 INFORMAL LOGIC Abortion is the termination of a pregnancy and expulsion of fetus from the uterus resulting in or cause by death of the embryo. The debate over the legal and ethical viability of abortion has been complicated by the lack of consensus in defining whether the developing embryo can be equated as human life. Many people are constantly debating whether or not abortion should be allowed or not. I believe in Pro Choice which believes that woman should have the right to decide if she wants to abort a baby or not. In this paper, I will look at abortions critically and express why abortion should be legal and be left us to a woman to decide. The goal is to point out reason why one might choose abortion. While one is Pro-Choice in the case of abortion, and feels that is should be legal and the choice of a woman. Upon reading the statement on what is pro-choice and how and when abortion is legalized. I will go over why I feel that abortions should be legal. Unwanted pregnancies can be very stressful for woman. Whether or not the woman has the right to have an abortion or not is a controversial subject. Prolife members believe that abortions are seriously wrong and killing a fetus is killing a person. However, woman should have the right to have an abortion for several reasons. Woman should have the right to make decision for their own bodies. Woman should be able to have an...

...Presentation på mellan 5-10 minuter. Viktigt med avgränsning och rödtråd Ämne: svensk återvinningsbransch - Biogas Ämnet för dagen var svensk återvinningsbransch, och jag valde att diskutera och avgränsa mig till biogas. Återvinning är en viktig komponent av modern avfallshantering. Med det menas tillvaratagande av material från avfall. Antingen kan man avse substansåtervinning, att nytt material produceras med hjälp av uttjänt/ använt material. Eller energiåtervinning, att man genom olika processer som förbränning återvinner energi ur avfall. Avfallshierarkin – 1 förebygga/minska, 2 återanvända och 3 återvinna Vad är biogas? En förnyelsebar energiresurs som i huvudsak består av metan och koldioxid. Metanhalten i biogas varierar från 40-80 %, med ett vanligt genomsnitt på ca 60 %. Övriga komponenter är koldioxid, kväve och olika föroreningar i mindre mängder. Det som ger gasen energivärde är metan (CH4). Användningsområde? Data från Energimyndigheterna, 2013 ” Produktion och användning av biogas år 2012” De vanligaste användningsområdena är uppgradering och värmeproduktion. Biogas som uppgraderas till naturgaskvalitet, renas från koldioxid (95 % metan) och kallas då ofta biometan. Uppgraderad biogas används till största delen som fordonsbränsle (fordonsgas). För att generera värmeproduktion förbränns gasen i en gaspanna. Värmen kan användas för uppvärmning av tappvarmvatten och lokaler. Metangas kan också användas för att producera el och......

Abortion; Pro-Life or Pro-Choice

...ABORTION; PRO-LIFE OR PRO-CHOICE Some people believe that abortion is immoral and some people don’t. Morality is an interpersonal conflict over a decision between right and wrong (“Morality”). The question is what reasons people have for their beliefs for and against abortion and whether those reasons are reasonable or not? There are two main groups of people in the case of abortion, pro-life supporters and pro-choice supporters. On the one hand, pro-life supporters, those who think abortion is not right, consider a fertilized human egg a human being from the moment of conception. Therefore, they refer to abortion as murder. On the other hand, the pro-choice supporters, those in favor of abortion, have a different perspective. They believe that a fetus is a human only after birth. The moral difference between these groups encompasses one issue. That is “At what stage is a fertilized egg considered a human being?” According to Peter Singer, there are four general stages that the pro-lifers and the pro-choicers argue about in terms of the standing of a fetus. They are: “birth, viability, quickening and the onset of consciousness” (138). The arguments made by the two groups for and against each of these stages causes the standing of an embryo to be upgraded to that of a child in the long run, as Singer suggests (138). Thus, this paper will examine and analyze the four moral junctures for the status of the fetus -“birth, viability,......

...What is bio gas--Biogas typically refers to a mixture of gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas can be produced from regionally available raw materials such as recycled waste. It is a renewable energy source and in many cases exerts a very small carbon footprint. Biogas is produced by anaerobic digestion with anaerobic bacteria or fermentation of biodegradable materials such as manure,sewage, municipal waste, green waste, plant material, and crops.[1] It is primarily methane (CH 4) and carbon dioxide (CO 2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulphide (H 2S), moisture and siloxanes. The gases methane, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide (CO) can be combusted or oxidized with oxygen. This energy release allows biogas to be used as a fuel; it can be used for any heating purpose, such as cooking. It can also be used in a gas engine to convert the energy in the gas into electricity and heat.[2] Biogas can be compressed, the same way natural gas is compressed to CNG, and used to power motor vehicles. In the UK, for example, biogas is estimated to have the potential to replace around 17% of vehicle fuel.[3] It qualifies for renewable energy subsidies in some parts of the world. Biogas can be cleaned and upgraded to natural gas standards when it becomes bio methane. Biogas is a biofuel and it generally refers to the gas produced from organic matter as it is broken down by biological means. You can build a biogas plant for your home,......

Pro-Life vs Pro-Choice

...Pro-Choice vs. Pro-Life People love to argue. Not in a screaming at each other because the peanut butter lid was left off again kind of way, but with intentions of being progressive. With a little bit of structure to an argument, it ends up being more of a debate and is usually enjoyable, especially if you win. Since people have been debating for so long, and like to do it, you would think that there would be a surefire way to come to a mutual understanding. However, certain topics will be debated until the end of time before there is ever any sort of resolution. When it comes to abortion, seldom is somebody without an opinion; and others could not be more rooted in their beliefs. In order to form an objective opinion it is imperative to understand both sides of a debate and then make a decision based on the facts. On the matter of abortion, the logic behind being pro-choice is more objective and therefore the stronger viewpoint. The first step in choosing a stance on abortion is to understand what the different beliefs are. There are two main beliefs on the matter: pro-life and pro-choice. A recent poll shows that about 51 percent of Americans are pro-life while 42 percent are pro-choice (Operation). According to the world’s oldest and largest pro-life organization, the mission of the pro-life belief is “to protect and defend the most fundamental right of humankind, the right to life of every innocent human being from the beginning of life to natural death”......

Pro Choice or Pro Life?

...RUNNING HEAD: PRO CHOICE 1 Pro Choice or Pro Life? Richard W. Emmendorfer PHI 103 Dr. Stephen Carter 28 October 2013 Abortion, sometimes viewed as a permanent solution to a temporary problem, should be or remain legal for specific cases involving victims of rape, significant medical conditions that would jeopardize the safety of the birth or guarantee severe birth deformities. Unwed adolescent parents are who are deemed unfit or who would not be able to provide adequate care should also be determined as a qualifying circumstances. Victims of rape would have a constant reminder of the experience weighing heavily on their mental health and would hold prejudice toward this child versus other children. An article from The Nation (2009) details that Regina Alves, a psychologist at a domestic violence center in Brazil, insists that when it comes to working with a victim of violence, “what matters is what she says.” (Sokoloff-Rubin, 2009) A testimony from a woman who was made pregnant from a rape when she was 15 accounts how different the child resulting from the rape is compared to her other children. "My first husband verbally abused her. I never have had, and still don't have, the maternal feelings for her that I have for my other kids. We're good friends and I so love her, but it's like we're sisters. I wish she could have had a more normal life.” (Meehan, 2013, p. 33) The mental stability of the victim and how the victim sees the child is......

In addition to dairy products more than enough for town residents, the town expanded its scope of aim from locally-produced food to locally produced energy. The town keeps strong relationship with Iwate Prefectural government which the governor shows strong leadership toward sustainable development. Inspired by Vaxjö City in Sweden and Denmark with their renewable energy systems, the town highlighted renewable energy production as one of the main town policies, and introduced wind turbines, solar panels, biogas plant and pellet stoves. Biogas plant was installed in the biggest dairy farm in the town to cope with excrements and food wastes from the farm and restaurant nearby. As the local forest company has continued pellet production since 1980s, the local actors are very active on promotion in woody biomass utilization. Now, Kuzumaki Town is known as one of pioneering town in renewable energy production and its well coordination with existing local industries.

Pro Life vs Pro Choice

...Kathleen Sacchetti Professor Brenza Essay-2 March 17th 2015 Pro-life vs. Pro-choice The issue of abortion in the United States will always be a controversial one. Developing two sides of the debate, pro-life and pro-choice. Pro-life are the individuals who do not believe in the option of abortion. Pro-choice are the individuals who believe every woman has the choice to go through with their pregnancy or to not. Despite their contrasts, pro-life and pro-choice explore valid ideas of religion, law and health care in their debates. Supporters of the movement pro-life vs pro-choice use religion to justify their beliefs. Pro-choice looks to Judaism for their answers. They have this idea that since God created every human being, we are all significant beings. Pro-choice advocates researched more information to support their statement and found this one by Moses. “[I have set before thee life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore, choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live]” (Bennett). This quote seems to be bashing pro-choice, but it is actually supporting it. According to the Jewish law and practice, a fetus is not considered a human until they can breathe their own air independently, so abortion is not considered a murder, or a life taken. But in the pro-life debate, they turn to Roman Christianity, which claims that the moment of conception is the start of new life. Pro-life advocates believe that all abortion is murder, and have no empathy for the women...

Experience of Biogas Technology in China

...Experience of Biogas Technology in China Biogas has a long history in China. China is one of those countries, which pioneered in the research, development and utilization of biogas. Mr. Lo Guo-rui initiated his own research work on biogas in early 1920s with the aim to reduce import of kerosene and meet fuel crisis. He built the first biogas plant in his own house in Swatow city in Kuanglong province. The plant worked well and could meet the cooking need of his 6 family members. Subsequently he constructed about a dozen of digesters. Their performance was good. In 1929 Mr. Lo established a company named ‘Guo-Rui Gas Light Col’ for the marketing of his products. In 1930 his model received patent right from the Ministry of Industries. Soon after, he shifted to Shanghai and renamed his company as ‘China Guo Rui Gas General Cooperation’. With the construction of digesters, he started developing appliances like burner, lamp, valve etc. Gradually, he expanded his activities in 13 provinces. At his initiative more than one hundred plants have been built. In some cities biogas is used for lighting in stores. Some rich people used biogas for lighting and cooking. Even after 50 years, some of his digesters were found functioning. These are mainly rectangular. Only a few are cylindrical. The sizes vary from 6m3-108m3. These are made of cement and bricks/rocks. From technical point of view, the plants were successful. But, high construction cost hindered popularization of the......
