What is the difference between Biomass Biofuel and Biogas?
Biomass is the combination of animal waste or dung, crop wastes or agricultural waste. While biofuel is the fuel or energy produced by using crop waste, the product is ethanol which is used as a fuel. Biogas is methane which is produced by fermentation of animal dung in the fermenter or biogas plant.

How is dung used as Fuel?
If you mean manure, you must own an equestrian center first. Then, when you get at least 25 lbs of dung, you can make one lb of manure, giving you an extra bountiful crop. (Dung costs 6e. each and you cannot use the dung you already own from your horses, you must buy it from the equestrian center store.)

Can poop be turned into fuel?
Absolutely, people have been using animal dung ("chips") to fuel fires for *centuries* in areas where wood is scarce, such as plains or deserts. However, you're thinking fuel for an engine, probably, and in which case I must say that it hasn't been invented yet, a car that runs on, er, waste. You should invent it :D
Asked in Cattle Diets and Nutrition
Does cow dung contain the remains of plants?
Of course! It is the results of digestion of plants. Not all plant material is digestible and a large percentage of it passes directly through the system. It is also true of any animal that eats plants, including humans. And cow dung contains enough material to make a usable fuel for fires and is common for cooking and heating in third world countries.

What is a cow known as in Buddhism?
In most Buddhist villiages, the holy sacred cow is referred to as Gaumata (cow the mother) or Aditi (mother of gods). Buddhists believe the cow is a very useful animal, having special qualities in it's milk, urine, and dung. Cow milk is considered to be easily digestable and good for mental health. Cow urine is used in many medicines curing cold, cough, headache, gastric-related problems, jaundice, prostate, leucorrhoea, tuberculosis, and even cancer. Cow dung is used to cleanse the skin from impurities, acts as a repellant from mosquitoes and other insects, and is useful in removing snake venom and all types of skin diseases completely. Cow dung is also highly anti-radioactive and protects from lightening surges. Dry dung cakes and Gobar gas (gas produced using cow dung) are used for fuel purposes. It's also used as a powerful fertilizer for agriculture.
How bio gas production helps in disaster management?

How is animal dung fermented to produce electricity?
Animal dung biodegrading anaerobically (without air) produces methane. This can be captured and burned to generate electricity in a gas-fired power plant. The carbon dioxide it releases is part of the carbon cycle, so it does not contribute to global warming. Burning fossil fuel natural gas (also methane) releases carbon dioxide that has been held underground for millions of years. So this adds to the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere causing global warming and climate change.
