The generation of combustible gas from anaerobic biomass captivation, is a well-known technology. Using the gas for direct combustion in household stoves is general producing power from biogas is still quite unusual in most emergent countries. The focus of this paper is to implement the importance of biogas as a substitute energy source. Bio-resources are available wide-reaching in the appearance of lasting agricultural biomass and wastes which can be deformed into biogas. Cow manure has been used for production of biogas and generation of electricity. The basic problem faced during the production of electricity is the production of biogas through anaerobic respiration which is the mixture of methane and other undesirable gases. The scrubber employed to remove the undesirable gases is very expensive and needs regular maintenance. A tap system at the top of the digester is used to remove moisture and a bucket filled with iron sponges is used to remove hydrogen sulphide. In the end, we are left with methane and some inert gases which have no adverse effect on combustion. This purified gas is used to produce electricity which is used to run the load. The benefit of this research is that this method is easily and commonly used by villagers without any hurdles.
