Biogas Market Size

Biogas Market was valued at USD 89 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of over 4.2% between 2024 and 2032. Biogas is a renewable energy source produced through the anaerobic digestion of organic matter, such as agricultural residues, municipal waste, or wastewater. The process involves the breakdown of organic materials by microorganisms in the absence of oxygen, leading to the production of biogas, which primarily consists of methane (CH2) and carbon dioxide (CO2).
