Simple biogas for the developing countries

Graham Knight’s message

It has now been established that biogas can be produced using one or more plants plants/waste food plus cow dung.

This is best done in a ‘bag’ made of polythene layflat that can be found all over local markets either clear or black.

Initially it is best to have two or more ‘bags’ so that one can take over another as the biogas is exhausted.

The biogas can be burnt in a simple stove made from a metal tin and tubing under a pan/pot..

Although the two or more biogas ‘bags’ can be connected together it is expected that they will be used separately.
