Management of Rural Biogas from Manure Waste using Multi-Criteria Analysis and Geographical Information System (GIS) Approach

Abstract—The objective of this study was to identify the renewable energy source potential anddetermining appropriate anaerobic digester (AD) scale and site in a rural area. The AD uses cow manure as feedstock. This study undertakes a multi-criteria analysis and a geographical information system (GIS) approach to allow the assessment of real information (climate, soil condition, land use, manure waste distribution) with subjective information from expert judgement. GIS was used to identify the settlement pattern of the village required for spatial cluster analysis, while analytical hierarchy process (AHP) was used to determine AD scale for each cluster (totally 27 cluster in the study area). There are 4 criteria and 11 sub-criteria have been used in a two level hierarchy to conduct the AHP. The results show that communal AD with capacity of 15 – 37.5 m3 are the most appropriate. The energy production potential depends on the size of the communal AD. The energy production ranges between is higher for the first assumptions and lower for the second one amounting to 24.92kWh/h and 47.28 kWh/h. The combination of GIS approach and MCA shows adequate for determining the AD scale and AD location. The methodology can further be used in profitability and environmental valuation.

Index Terms—Anaerobic digester, spatial cluster analysis, analytical hierarchy process, energy production.
