A Research Fellow at The Energy Centre (TEC) at KNUST, Mr Joseph Oppong Akowuah, has underscored the need for Ghana to put in place measures to promote its biogas production for power generation.

A Research conducted by the University indicates that over 110 megawatts of power countrywide could be generated.

 Biogas is a renewable energy source produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. It can be produced from regionally available raw materials such as recycled and food waste and is environmentally friendly.

According to him, waste from both humans and local industries could produce electricity that could be fed into the national grid instead of adding it up to the heap of sewage that the country currently produced.

He announced this at a conference on how to put biomass to productive use organised in Accra.
