The workloads of people, particularly women, have decreased in everyday activities since the installation of the biogas plant, which has had a good impact on the family members’ workload schedules. The current study shows that there is a rising tendency toward reliance on biogas plants, which appears to be solid evidence for the preservation of forest resources.
