  2. 2. Opportunities for the Jatuwa community biogas plant : An energy demand survey and a field site examinationMinor Field Study

    Kandidat-uppsats, KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik; KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Författare :Axel Öhman; Bill Edwall; [2018]
    Nyckelord :Biogas; energy demand; sustainable technology; Biogas; energibehov; hållbar energi;

    Sammanfattning : De klimatförändringar som idag orsakar allt större problem för länder i Himalayaregionen har ökat beslutsfattares medvetenhet kring konsekvenserna som de ökande temperaturerna för med sig. När människor konsumerar energi från fossila bränslekällor ökar koncentrationen av bland annat koldioxid i atmosfären vilket bidrar till den växthuseffekt som sakta värmer upp jordens klimat.
