DIY Biogas Plant

Posted by Krzysztof Lis on July 11, 2010

If you ever wondered how is it possible to make biogas at home, than you just found the right place. :) I’m going to show you two great books to read if you ever wanted to make biogas.

Biogas production, also known as anaerobic digestion, is a process in which a biodigestible matter (biomass) is transformed by bacteria to biogas. It is done in reactors called biodigesters, which you feed with all the waste biomass (cut grass, waste water — especially blackwater, . The remaining digestate is very nutrient-rich and can be used as a fertilizer. Because of that, I believe that anaerobic digestion is a better way to utilize waste biomass than composting, as the latter only produces fertilizer. Anaerobic digestion produces both fertilizer and biogas.

I posted here two years ago a short video on how to make small amounts of biogas, but today I will show you much better ways to make this fuel. :)

Anaerobic digestion – article from Wikipedia

Posted by Krzysztof Lis on July 1, 2010

As the Wikipedia is a great source of information on many renewable subjects, I don’t want to write my own article about anaerobic digestion — a process that produces biogas.

Below you will find an exact copy of the Wiki’s article on anaerobic digestion. It’ll be used as a reference in my future articles.

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. WAIT!

Biogas is gaseous alternative fuel. It is produced when biodegradable matter (biomass) is broken down biologically in the absence of oxygen, in a process called anaerobic digestion. Because of that, biogas is considered a biofuel. WAIT! There is more to read… read on »
