Making Bio-Gas / Bio-Methane from Vegetable mater

Is BioGas Energy available for City Dwellers as well as Rural ? The short answer is a BIG YES !

If you have an area 98x98x114cm heigh, then you can install our smallest 1.2m3 Bio-Gas unit, this affordable unit comes in a flat-pack kit, with everything you need to get it operational, bar the Vegetable/Biomass and initial water.   Our 3.4m3 Bio-Gas unit requires an area 156x120x195cm for installation, these two units are the same design, the larger unit obviously produce more Bio-Gas.

If you are one of those concerned about what many call "climate change" (we call it Climate Cycling), and looming fossil energy decline, the benefits of biogas are obvious.  BioGas is a renewable energy source with zero net greenhouse emissions, and yet its potential has largely gone untapped, at least in the developed world.

Based on research and experience, home-produced biogas is an extremely promising technology whose time has come.  In fact, we believe it could provoke a domestic green energy revolution, if only we let it.

What is biogas ? Biogas is produced when micro-organisms digest organic matter (biomass) under anaerobic conditions (that is, in the absence of oxygen).  This process produces a mixture of gases – primarily methane, some carbon dioxide and small amount of other gases such as hydrogen sulphide.

When the biogas is filtered through what is called a Scrubber, it removes the hydrogen sulphide that is smelly & corrosive, after the simple filtering the resulting mixture can then be burned as an energy source for cooking, lighting, or for water or space heating, and obviously in a fuel generator to power your premises, ideally biogas should be compressed when used as fuel for gen-set or vehicles.  On a commercial scale biogas can be used to generate electricity or even refined and fed into the natural gas grid.

The types of organic matter used to produce biogas include food waste, animal manure and agricultural by products like grain that has been used to manufacture Ethanol.  Some commercial systems use sewage to produce and capture biogas.

Biogas is a very useful source of renewable energy that is generally piped from a Digester, then through a Scrubber, and then compressed into common LPG bottles, or piped directly to be combusted to produce heat (for steam) or electricity etc.

Digested waste from the biogas production process has a high nutrient content, so it can be used as rich liquid fertiliser for your garden - as long as it is free of pathogens or toxins - or it can be simply composted.

Who can Make Bio-gas ?  This is something that can be done by any handy person, all that is needed is a supply of Vegetable/Organic matter and water for the initial priming.

We supply these two small affordable Biogas Plants for those wanting to make there mark on the planet, if you require a commercial BioGas plant please ask!

If you are looking to power your home on BioGas, there are two main ways to do this, the best & most reliable way is to Compress the BioGas into LPG BBQ tanks, done by simply drawing the biogas directly from the digester bag, via an Air compressor, then it can be used exactly like LPG gas using a BBQ regulator for decanting for cooking, heating and operating a generator to power your premises, all whilst charging your battery bank at the same time.
