Small Scale Biogas Production in a Dairy Farming at Kaligondo Sub-district, Banyuwangi, East Java

I Putu Dody Lesmana, Beni Widiawan


A biogas production in a dairy farming is an anaerobic digester that generates biogas from  cow  waste.  The  group  of  dairy  farmers,  Sumber  Lumintu  and  Susu  Segar  Kita,  has developed  a  small  scale  biogas  plant  at  a  commercial  dairy  farm  at  Kaligondo sub-district, Banyuwangi,  East  Java.  The  purpose  of  this  projet  which  funded  by  Ministry  of  Research, Technology  and  Higher  Education  of  the  Republic  of  Indonesia  is  to  encourage  green technology and zero waste concepts on dairy farming as well as to mitigate adverse effects on the  environment  due  to  unsystematic  management  of  cows  waste  disposal.    The  biogas produced is used as biogas rice cooker, biogas lamp, and liquid fertilizer. The output of biogas digester  is  connected  to  the  biogas  reservoir  in  order  to  supply  cooking  appliances  for  dairy products. A biogas plant in a dairy farming is one of the green technology applications because it  not  only  produces  renewable  gas  whereas  minimizes  greenhouse  gas  emissions  and environmental  pollution.  Furthermore,  the  residual  solid  waste  produced  at  the  end  of  the process can be dried or be liquidated to be used as organic fertilizer.
