Techno-economic assessment of biogas energy from animal wastes in central areas of Palestine: Bethlehem perspective

Maher Al-Maghalseh [1]


This study was carried out to assess the biogas potential at the central area of west bank at Palestine, mainly at Ramallah and Bethlehem regions. Due to the high demands and limitation of sources, Palestine suffers from electrical capacity shortage during winter time. However, the main objective of the study is to make an assessment of biogas potential and plant design at central regions at west bank. The study was implemented on one 33kV line with a power demand of 19.5 MVA. It is feeding the resident area of east Bethlehem villages. The digesters volume for the feedstocks was estimated and the material requirements for the digesters were also determined. The techno-economic analysis of the proposed project was also evaluated. Furthermore, the study clearly described the effects of the plant on the existing network with respect of voltage profile, power flow, and power losses. Finally, an economic analysis of the system will be evaluated. The results suggested that the proposed project was feasible, and it was concluded that the potential in Bethlehem region is capable of producing enough biogas to support the electric network.
