Renewable Natural gas (RNG) or Biogas is one of the important sustainable sources of energy today. As more and more people start making and using the RNG at homes through biomass digesters they are also oblivious to the fact that this gas has a lot of contaminants that come with it. If not removed, these contaminants when burnt can release dangerous chemicals into confined spaces like homes and kitchen which can cause health issues to the people residing there. One of these chemicals is called Siloxanes which are present in soaps and shampoos we use daily. When siloxanes are burnt it produces silica micro particles which can cause silicosis and lung cancer. This calls for a community awareness mission and also more research on the impact of other renewable natural gas on health.
