Around 397 households in Bagatipara are using biogas from Biogas Plant to fulfill their demand. The main purpose of the IMPACT project under the Department of Youth and Sports Ministry, is for youth development and to create employment opportunities for unemployed youth and socio-economic development, this project has been started by properly managing cattle-chicken farm expansion, using farm waste as an alternative fuel for the production of electricity and gas.

The main goal of the IMPACT project is to ensure the use of local resources by featuring innovative management and technical support for rural unemployed youth and vulnerable women by providing skill development training of rural youth and other family members in establishing commercial poultry-cattle farm, to increase production of fruit-vegetables namely meat, eggs, milk, fruits, vegetables, etc. to fulfill the food needs of the country.

In Bangladesh, the first biogas plant was set up by Dr. M A Karim, a professor of Bangladesh Agricultural University (BAU), Mymensingh, in the University campus in 1972. It was a floating dome type plant of 3m3 gas production capacity. Subsequently, seeing the success of the plant, 4-5 more plants were constructed in the surroundings. These plants did not last long due to leakage in the domes.

In 1974, the Bangladesh Academy for Rural Development (Bard) constructed one biogas plant following the same design. The Institute of Fuel Research and Development (IFRD) constructed another plant in the campus of the Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR) in 1976, followed by a plant at the KBM College in Dinajpur in 1980.
