 Bio Energy Technology Application Pakistan (BETA PAK)  is registered as a partnership company under the Partnership Act 1932 in Pakistan and is working in the field of  community based bio gas energy development  and  management.              

                                              

 

 

 

 

BETA PAK is dedicated to the development and promotion of biogas energy technology and has so far developed and operating hundreds of domestic and dozens of commercial biogas plants all over Pakistan.

Biogas typically refers to a gas produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Bio-gas offers highly cost effective, renewable and decentralized energy production for domestic and commercial consumers. Pakistan did tried biogas production in Seventies but it could not succeed due to lack of technology and awareness among the communities. Recent technological advancements in biogas digesters especially the Chinese Dome Shaped digester has greatly helped in developing a highly efficient, economically viable, environment and user friendly biogas plant, which is successfully being developed and operated using indigenous construction material and equipments. This biogas plant is successfully being used in China, India and recently in Pakistan for biogas production using cow dung and poultry waste. Biogas is extensively produced in China and India using anaerobic digestion techniques and currently 5,000,000 households are using dome shaped digesters in China. 

Domestic biogas plants of various sizes cost not more than Pak Rs. 95 thousands and can generate 10-20 cubic meter of natural biogas in a day. Biogas so produced could also be used for electricity generation using common patrol/diesel generators with little alteration. It has been proved that decentralized bio-gas energy production using animal dung is highly sustainable as it is economically viable, socially acceptable besides being environment friendly. A rural household possessing an average of five livestock heads can produce 10 m of biogas sufficient for their daily domestic energy need besides producing decomposed humus as a rich source of organic manure. It has been observed that a domestic biogas plant can save Rs. 5000/- per month besides saving huge foreign exchange that we spend on importing LPG and other fuels coupled with conserving the precious forestry resources from cutting as source of fuel-wood. Pakistan being the 5th largest livestock and dairy producing country can easily adopt these technologies at household and community level to ensure energy security in rural areas.
