Anaerobic Gas Lift Reactor (AGR) (E)

CSIR-IICT developed the novel Anaerobic Gas Lift Reactor (AGR) to generate biogas and bio manure from biodegradable organic wastes. The AGR technology works on a high rate biomethanation process suitable for operation in Indian conditions. The biogas can be utilized for combined heat and power applications, while the biomanure rich in nutrients can be applied in farms to increase the fertility of the soil for improved crop yield.The AGR technology helps reduce GHGs (greenhouse gases) and avoids the diversion of waste to landfills resulting in a cleaner environment. The reactor has generated 1,27,228m3 of biogas during 20months
