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.
