Production of Carbon-Neutral electricity using biomass is the growing need of world especially in Pakistan as it is facing energy crisis. Among all sustainable and renewable energy technologies like solar, wind etc., biogas is mature in terms of years of use and number of units installed. Being technologically simpler biogas has lowest financial input per KWh of output energy. Livestock count of above 200 millions in rural areas demonstrates a bankable potential of generating energy. This work is on generation of electricity utilizing cow dung to determine potential of power generation based on biogas in Pakistan. Dry process for biogas reactor design has been focused as a sustainable contribution to alleviate energy crisis.
