The deployment of distributed generation in electricity distribution networks can potentially increase their reliability and reduce the cost of power, by installing energy sources closer to the demand or consumption points. This type of generation involves a great variety of energy sources, such as; wind, solar, hydraulic, fossil fuels, biomass, among others.</p> 2020-02-06T09:09:35+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijpse/article/view/415 Potential energy of plant biomass: banana, coconut, cacao and corn 2020-04-04T03:45:17+00:00 Genial Belvine Epeni Tombo manabiepenitgenialb@gmail.com Edison Cedeño Zambrano edison_1216@hotmail.com Jair Loor Barreiro jair06alberto@gmail.com Jordi Medranda Posligua manabiordymedranda27@hotmail.com <p style="text-align: justify;">In this document, a study was carried out on the energy potential of plant biomass in the Portoviejo canton, since climate change is not a utopia, but the reality. Throughout this study, an overview of the capacity in biomass at the national, provincial and cantonal level (Portoviejo) was presented, a study on the culture of banana, cocoa, coconut, and corn was made since it is important to know if the canton can respond to the biomass demand of the selected plants. Then the socio-economic and environmental impacts were analyzed in a general way.</p> 2020-03-31T12:38:31+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## https://www.sciencescholar.us/journal/index.php/ijpse/article/view/416 Obtaining biogas product from biological residues vaccines in Chone city 2020-04-04T03:45:16+00:00 Janner Leonel Santos Mantuano jannerjlsm45@gmail.com Manuel Enrique Vergara Macías manuelvergaramacias@gmail.com Erik Sebastian Sanchez Toapanta sanchezerik2013@gmail.com Klever Steven Tubay Palma kleversteven.tubaypalma2@aiesec.net María Fernanda Vivas Giraldo vivasgiraldofernanda@gmail.com <p style="text-align: justify;">In this research, we studied the use of cattle biological waste to obtain biogas through a biodigester in the city of Chone, considered the livestock capital of Ecuador. Biogas is a mixed gas produced by the fermentation (anaerobic digestion) of organic materials in the absence of oxygen. It is mostly composed of methane and carbon dioxide. The biogas production process takes place in a container called a digester, in which the anaerobic fermentation process occurs. Obtaining biogas is one of the most used alternative sources for the production of renewable energy, so it can be evidenced by its importance as a tool against the fight of the environmental problem that exists today. The use of biogas of bovine origin has a high calorific value so it can be used for the production of heat, electricity or biofuel. This initiative seeks to manage and sustainably reduce organic waste, reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emitted into the atmosphere and reduce dependence on fossil fuels.</p> 2020-04-01T13:30:15+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
