82. Consider the following statements with reference to bio-energy as a renewable energy source:

  1. Plants ensure continuous supply of gas due to their continuous growth
  2. Cost of obtaining energy from biogas is less than that from fossil fuels
  3. Digestion of sludge may produce H2S and NOx which are injurious to human health
