The enormous growth in industries and increase in population are the main reason for heavy depletion of fossil fuel. In recent years, the desire of energy independence, foreseen depletion of non-renewable fuel sources, fluctuating petroleum fuel costs, the necessity of stimulating agriculture based economy, and the reality of climate change have created an interest in the development of biofuels. Though large amount of biomass is available they are not properly utilized for the energy conversion. Keeping this in mind the trapping of energy from various biomass sources is essential. Biogas technology is one which can be adopted for heat and power generation. Biogas produced by the anaerobic digestion from various organic substances offers low cost and low emissions than any other secondary fuels. This paper provides a short review on the potential biogas production and its application, as a gaseous fuel in Internal Combustion (IC) engines.
