I have been searching for some method of using the food waste, decomposable organic material and kitchen waste efficiently, and came across information on producing bio-gas from organic waste.

The bio-gas produced from food waste, decomposable organic material and kitchen waste, consisting of methane and a little amount of carbon di oxide is an alternative fuel for cooking gas (LPG). Also, the waste materials can be disposed off efficiently without any odor or flies and the digested slurry from the bio-gas unit can be used as an organic manure in the garden.

Components of the Bio-gas Plant

The major components of the bio-gas plant are a digester tank, an inlet for feeding the kitchen waste, gas holder tank, an outlet for the digested slurry and the gas delivery system for taking out and utilizing the produced gas.

This project is also useful for students to have a hands-on learning experience in constructing a Mini Bio-Gas Plant, using locally available material.

Material Required:

1. Empty PVC can 50 ltrs capacity: 1 No. (to be used as Digester Tank)
2. Empty PVC can 40 ltrs capacity: 1 no. (to be used as Gas Holder Tank) (Make sure the smaller can fits inside larger one and moves freely)
3. 64 mm dia pvc pipe: about 40 cm long (to be used for feeding waste material)
4. 32 mm dia pvc pipe: about 50 cm long (fixed inside gas holder tank as a guide pipe)
5. 25 mm dia pvc pipe: about 75 cm long (fixed inside the digester tank as a guide pipe)
6. 32 mm dia pvc pipe: about 25 cm long (fixed on digester tank to act as outlet for digested slurry)
7. M-seal or any water-proof adeshive
8. Gas outlet system: Please see Step 4 below for required materials and construction

Tools required

Do not require many tools here. A hack saw blade for cutting the cans & pipes and a sharp knife for cutting holes on the cans are all the tools we need.

Additional accessories

A single burner bio-gas stove or a Bunsen Burner used in school laboratories

I am really interested in

this system, I wish to apply it in my native place, and it can reduce
the costs to LPG and will be a good step for families.

Please
send me the details to my mail id so that we can plan to implement in
our area for whole families. my mail id is jack.lokesh@gmail.com.

Hi Antoni,

I would like to make this at home could you please share the details and also the list of items which can go to the digester and which should not be put (outer cover of Orange / Lemon etc). Thanks in Advance - Jayanth.Sindhe@gmail.com

Please go through the attached files sent to your mail for more information.

You can add all animal waste, kitchen waste and left-over food. Do not feed onion skin, garlic skin, egg shells, bone and anything containing lots of fiber like Drumstick

Hello,

I'm currently creating plants that I'd like to fuel with group kitchen waste as well as organic material pulled from our gardens. It would be greatly appreciated if you could tell me just how much material you put in the digester, and how much biogas it was able to reliably yield. Thanks in advance. My email is alex@humanitad.org

antoniraj (author)  arcorren3 days ago
Please go through files sent to your mail. You need to feed the plant about 5 kgs of waste per 1000 ltr capacity digester tank and you will get about 800 to 1000 grams of biogas depending on the type of feed material
