    Samenvatting

    Biogas derived from organic waste materials is a promising alternative and renewable gaseous fuel for internal combustion engines (ICE) and could substitute the conventional fossil fuels. The goals of this paper are to review the biogas fueling in engines and from this review, to identify current technological potential. An overview of physicochemical properties of biogas is presented. According to the analysis, biogas fueling in engines causes lower power output compared to other fuels but allows lower emissions (nitrogen oxides (NOx)). Thus, there are needs to investigate the exhaust emissions of biogas engines, the durability of the engines as well as the biogas dual fuel engines operation need to be investigated both experimentally and computationally. The literature review reveals that the published research on biogas combustion technology is not rich in number and requires further investigation.
