DIY biogas generator

Posted by Krzysztof Lis on August 14, 2008

I believe that DIY projects are the best way to learn about alternative fuels and renewable energies. Today I was searching the YouTube for videos on biogas production and found some good examples of biodigesters that can be made at home. Here’s one of those biogas generators.

I think about building something a bit bigger. I think I’ll buy three plastic barrels, connect them in a smart way and use them for making biogas. One will contain the biomass to be digested. Second will contain the biogas. Third will be used to store water, which will fill the second barrel when it’s empty. This water will also allow me to have the biogas slightly pressurised. I’ll post more info in near future, if I decide to make this project something more than just an idea. ;)

[edit]
Two much better designs of do-it-yourself biodigesters can be found here.
