Abstract: This paper investigates the research and development carried out with bio-gas energy technologies. Its describe the Bio-gas technologies that are commercially available technologies and performance evaluation in real in-situ term periodical gas pressure monitoring of gas holder and also carried out the experimental study of gas consumption in a Controlled cooking test (CCT). The World Cow Research Center (WCRC) cow generates about 10 to12 kg of dung per day, On the basis of these we also calculated the economics of a biogas plant involves the calculation of annual profit cost for the LPG equivalent of dung. The use of bio-gas technology has benefited the country in improving health, environment, economy and energy conservation.
