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

please give me your mail id...

please, i want to understand how the bacteria work in it and in which temperature it should be in?

my email is naira.eldesoky14@stemmaadi.edu.eg

please see attached file sent to your mail on constructing a mini Biogas Plant. If you need further information, please mention your exact requirement like 'For school project" or "For home use"

Please go through my other instructable "Make Energy from Weeds" where I have explained how the bacteria work in Step 1. Here is the direct link...

You can also go through my another instructable on constructing a medium sized Biogas plant here...

http://www.instructables.com/id/Constructing-a-Med...

The best temperature for a biogas plant to operate is 37 deg C (+ or - 2 deg). However in my case I am getting gas in varying temperatures between 20 to 40 Deg C.

Sir,

I am from Canada,my daughter is planning to do a project on Bio gas in an upcoming sciencefair.Could you please help me by sending more details?and also want to know whether it will work during winer season?
antoniraj (author)  Nazeerkandathil12 days ago
please give me your mail id and I will send more details. You need to keep the slurry warm during winter. In places where you experience severe cold, the whole plant is kept buried to keep it warm. Few people use heat pads also around the digester
Thank you sir
