The reduction of greenhouse gases (GHG) and Carbon foot prints are the main objectives decided by the organizations worldwide working for the clean and pollution free environment and sustainability for the future generations. This can only be achieved if the dependency on fossil fuels is reduced and the clean energy is used instead. The usage of renewable energy resources is the need of the time. In this chapter we discuss the bioenergy technologies and how the biowaste produced in the universities can be successfully utilized to produce clean energy. The educational institutes such as colleges and universities can not only be used to educate the future generations regarding the sustainability but in fact can put their contribution in clean and renewable energies by research and development. The concept of Green Campuses can be used as a practical implementation of new clean technologies besides research and development of the new renewable energy resources. The current engineering technologies that can be used to convert campus food waste into bio energy are provided for the production of bio energy that can help the university campus reduce the dependency on the fossil fuels by using the produced energy not only for making food for students but as a source of fuel for on campus transportation, electric and heating requirements. Also, different case studies have been presented from the campuses around the world regarding production of bio energy and conversion of this energy into electricity and gas using Anaerobic Digesters and combined heat and power plants. These case studies show the effectiveness of the bioenergy production concept implementations. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.
