Hi there, I am Sahas chitlange, aging 14, from India. here is my homemade cheap and easy to build mini Biogas plant. It burns for approx. 20-30 mins on a bunsen burner. you can add anything from your kitchen waste ( Exept Onion peels and eggshells). In 12 hours the Gas is ready for use. It is very easy and cost effective to build (only 2-3 dollars) and gives many useful products.

the end products of this system are:
1) Methane : (Can be used as a fuel)
2) Slurry     : (the spent slurry is exellent manure)

The main components oof this system are:

1)  Inlet pipe
2) digester tank
3) gas holder tank
4) slurry outlet pipe
5) gas outlet pipe

Pls leave a comment

Step 1: Chose the correct container

You will have to chose a correct size container which will act as a digester tank. My one is liters tank. I got it from scrap.
<p>It looks excellent, but step 8 is missing. I hope this works for a friend in Uganda.</p>
<p>I was young at that time. Click, click, publish.... By mistake left it...</p><p>Thanks </p>
<p>Hello i'm Mr Bukky i like your work.....please i want you to give me full details of this project....thanks</p>
How exactly could I help you please?<br>You want what Information?<br>Sahas
<p>hello sahas, this is srinidhi from bangalore. Ccan u plsss send me the copy of ur work to my e-mail id??. my dessertation work is on Biomethanation.</p><p>E-mail id: srinidhi68@gmail.com</p><p>or</p><p>parasharsrinidhi@gmail.com</p>
Bro can you send me a copy maximusfisher79@gmail.com
<p>hello dear. i am Ben from Nigeria. i will like to teach my collegues and friends this method to generate biogas from kitchen waste and animal dung. I will appreciate if I can get more detailed instruction manual on how to make this home made Biogas if possible with video .</p><p>Much appreciated</p><p>My email addressess idayodele@gmail.com<br></p>
<p>I really like this project I've been looking to do something like this for a while </p>
<p>This is really helpful for people just getting started. Congrats Sahas. I remember when I first saw this Instructable, keep up the good work!</p><p><br>To anyone who wants a complete guide, I highly recommend checking out:<br><a href="http://tiny.cc/LibertyBiogas" rel="nofollow">Liberty Generator by Abel Thomas</a><br><br>It's a very sustainable and allows you to save maximum $$$. More people need to realize that you don't need to spend ridiculous money on solar panels, there are much cheaper methods.</p>
<p>nice you done , encorage your friends to do like you and save environment </p>
Good day! This is amazing! Can you please email your procedure to Kaneisha.rutherford@gmail.com
Please send me the procedure at topslee342@Gmail. Com
<p> i found the cost to be a little off i admire your ingenuity in tool improvisations (hot rod in place of a hole saw) and just building the system in general i am impressesd bravo </p>
<p>excellent work sir can you please mail this procedure to my gamil vragavender@gmail.com</p>
<p>Sir please send me detail how to make Bio Gas plant at below email- pradeepend@yahoo.co.in ; ph 9944445009</p>
<p>2 or 3 dollars to make? The cost of a used barrel with a perfect seal? Here about a $100. Then the pipe and fittings, another $50 or $80. Also different glues work with different plastics, you need to source the right kind especially if you are trying to glue dissimilar plastics. I am looking for practical ideas for a developing country, and a barrel like the one used here is almost impossible to find even if someone can afford it</p>
<p>the last picture confuses me, why the paint bucket is &quot;floating&quot;. i belive that it must be well atachet and sealed inside the tank. i mean, i believe the tank must be completly sealed, except by inlet pipe, outlet pipe and the vale. if the gas holder thank is floating over the slurry, how much gas it can contain and how much gas scape from digester tank?</p><p>Last question, why do you put that bricks over the gas holder tank?</p><p>sincerely i hope you can answer. i am very interested in this proyect, but need more information and alternatives to use the cow dung. i live in the middle of the city and can't get it.</p><p>thanks for your attention</p>
<p>nice work . please can you send me the instraction by emai to Abdelali.bousta1995@gmail.com .</p>
<p>well done</p>
<p>Does this need emptying from time to time? </p>
<p>How far above does the waste pipe have to be from the contents inside? If I just use the containers lid does this pipe need to be closed to avoid gas escaping through it? </p>
<p>Dear Sir,</p><p>I have no basic idea about dairy farm, But I am planning to open<br>a cattle farm with 10 cows. Kindly<br>let me know, What are other way to earn the money such as generating power<br>and bio gas for supplying to neighbor.</p><p>Muthukrishnan.</p><p>Kr.muthu2@gmail.com</p>
<p>hie bro, my name is Tarirai from Zimbabwe i like the innovation my brother . can you help how can i use your idea suppose i want to use the home sower as a the digester. and how can i connect gas holder to the sower in the event that i need to use for domestic purposes . You may email me at tmwoyowatidhi@gmail.com thank you very much domes domesti</p>
<p>hello my name is Bosco from Uganda, what i didn't understand is the gas holding container is place with open top? or with a cover?</p>
<p>What are good &amp; effective alternative house waste if I have no access to cow dung (and it smells, doesn't it?) since we live in city. I like you simple system. Keep up the good work as this will greatly change the way we generate green energy cheaply everywhere with little investment. </p>
hello dear. i am Garba Matthew Torkuma from Nigeria. i will like to teach village women around me this technology so as to help reduce deforestation since it is really rampart here. can you please send me a more detailed instruction manual on how to make this home made Biodigester please note possible ways to make it more effective and long lasting. thank you.<br>my email addressess are :1. garbamatthew@garbamatthew.com (2) sonofdesun01@yahoo.com.<br>i really appreciate what you are doing.. thank you and remain blessed.
<p>My brother have you started yours? its a great innovation here.</p>
I am working on that... I will be back:).
<p>very Interesting . </p><p>gathering my materials to construct mine in Nigeria </p>
Sir Please talk about the temperature and pH value recorded. Also i need more details on the gas holder design cause I'm a bit confused. My email yusufalhassan@ymail.com . Thank you sir
