Abstract

The production of biogas from municipal sewage sludge as an alternative source of energy has become topical. The healthy, safety and environmental considerations are of utmost importance especially the environmental impact assessment for setting up, commissioning, operating and decommissioning the biogas plant. Healthy and safety considerations for noise, dust emissions as well as gaseous emissions from the process must be minimized. The socioeconomic benefits that come with the setting up of a biogas plant such as employment creation must be maximised.
