Agricultural Waste To Energy Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type ( Solid, Semi-solid, Liquid ), By End Product( Biogas, Biofuel, Others ) and regional forecast 2023-2030

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI103910 | Status : Ongoing



Agricultural waste is nowadays widely adopted to manufacture biogas or biofuel, which is obtained from biomass or agricultural wastes like molasses, bagasse, slurries, manure, etc. To obtain biogas from agricultural wastes, pre-treatment methods like size reduction, electron irradiation, heat treatment, enzymatic action etc. are necessary, or poultry litter is recommended. Renewable energy is generated from the slurry, bagasse, and other agricultural waste, which is then used to generate heat and electrical energy. Biogas and biofuel are then used in various industries to produce energy such as electricity & heat and reduction in dependence on oil, petroleum, and natural gas. Biogas and biofuel are the sources of renewable energy that are then used to reduce pollution.

Based on type, the agriculture waste to energy market is segmented into solid, semi-solid, and liquid. Solid agricultural waste is likely to dominate the industry as it is used as manure, fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides in farms, poultry houses, and slaughterhouses. Along with it, it is easy to use and accessibility compared to the other available alternatives.

Based on the end product, the market can be majorly distributed into biogas, biofuel, and others. Biogas is set to hold significant share during the forecast timeline owing to its eco-friendly operations along with various applications in cooking, cooling, and heating. It is also used in producing electricity and the production of steam in many industries.

The key market driver of this market is the rapidly growing demand for renewable power generation coupled with rising measures to curb the carbon discharge. Other factors propelling the industry size are energy supply in rural communities and agro enterprises, biomass renewable energy is used for electricity generation, and to reduce environmental pollution.

The key market restraint is agricultural waste; if not used appropriately, it can cause substantial soil degradation along with contamination of water and air quality. Furthermore, inappropriate or insufficient knowledge about the uses of agricultural waste in energy generation leading to environmental pollution may obstruct the industry pace.

Key Market Driver -

Paradigm shift towards sustainable energy along with favaorable targets to support the shift

Key Market Restraint -

Risks of soil degradation upon improper treatment
