    Biogas at home- Cheap and Easy

    Hi Rick,That sounds interesting, I am trying to visualize how you extend the bottles with bags, and join everything together. Do you have some pictures or a video? I am trying to make things from waste plastic, but now am having a problem with so called biodegradable plastic. I don't know what it degrades into, probably small pieces of plastic. Even some PET bottles are made from biodegradable preforms, and are not identified as such. The way I know the bags are biodegradable is in a couple of weeks they rip. Sometimes I don't know which way to jump. What other projects are you working on?

    Hi Rick, I have seen things like that, even a trench with a long poly tube instead of a bag, but the developing country I am in has a limited selection of affordable materials. I managed to get some used 1,000 Liter plastic tanks with a valve at the bottom and a tight fitting cap so hopefully we can make something practical for about a $100. I don't understand why he says it cost $2 to $3 unless he got confused by the conversion from their currency. Don't you have problems with mice and rats chewing on them? I have seen them chew the insulation off live electrical wires and bucket lids.Are you familiar with using charcoal in composting toilets and with animal bedding? If not, look up biochar. When we get set up we will do a study about the effects of charcoal on gas production, I can't ...see more »Hi Rick, I have seen things like that, even a trench with a long poly tube instead of a bag, but the developing country I am in has a limited selection of affordable materials.

    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
