This book empirically identifies the most important socio-economic factors that influence to adopt the domestic biogas plant. The level of education, income, number of cattle and sex (female) are most influential to adopt biogas plant. Data of biogas users and potential biogas users were collected from Bangladesh. Application of slurry, byproduct of biogas technology plays a vital role to increase agricultural production as well as improve the soil fertility. This book proves that slurry oriented biogas households are more efficient to Boro rice production compare to biogas non-users. Finally, the book finds that biogas is a profitable business considering the financial and economic assumption. All these assumptions are prescribed to provide incentives for extending the biogas business. Using the find of these empirical analyses, some policy recommendations are presented in order to enlarge the biogas technology in rural areas of Bangladesh.
