Is there a (easy, cheap) way to capture biogas from legacy cesspools and how can/would one use such energy capture?
I have a rural property with 3 legacy cesspools that were dug in the 1960's.
Cesspools are essentially underground chambers that are hermetically sealed from the surface but which let fluids leach out through the bottom and sides. Our waste water drains into the cesspools. One cesspool gets no poop, just graywater. The others get the full mix. My understanding is that poop and everything else that goes down the drain decomposes anerobically.
So I wonder is there something interesting to do to capture some energy...?
