Making biogas

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

Jeff,

I am looking for plans to make a bio gas generation system using 6 to 8  55 gallon plastic drums.

Can you help?

John,

Try this do-it-yourself handbook on making bio-gas systems: http://www.completebiogas.com/

Good luck,

Jeff Yago

 

Biogas

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

Hi Jeffery,

So I’ve checked the local library and done some surfing and I find very little about home generated methane gas production. I have 6 horses so I have lots of raw material. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks!

Christopher W. Spear

Christopher:

Although you have a good idea, I am not sure if you have enough animals to make it worthwhile. You need to buy or build a biogas digester. Here are some plans for these and some links to more information,

Good luck,
