My experience in the biogas project was very interesting because it was the first time I heard about it.
I learned a lot about biogas, how to build one and I can see biogas can change people’s lives because people can save money by reducing cooking expenses by as much as 80%.
Cooking is easier and quicker than cooking with charcoal or firewood, it reduces your household waste
because the biogas system converts organic household waste, improves your house because you have a
source of energy for cooking and it produces your own organic fertilizer and helps the environment.
Biogas is made up of five sections: a mixing tank, inlet chamber, digester, and outlet chamber and last an overflow tank. Also biogas is made from food waste. Cow dung is the main source for a biogas digester as
the bacteria in dung has more potential than others.
The biogas is also the future of waste processing as 40% of the waste in the average rubbish bin is food waste and it’s all going to landfills which pollutes the soil and other resources and create methane gas which contributes to climate change. So the digester not only diverts this but also creates useful output from the otherwise wasted food, gets energy and brings back valuable nutrients to the soil. Inside the digester tank is where the digester of the waste occurs and bacteria that lives without oxygen do this process. This bacterium is called anaerobic bacteria of living organisms they love a warm environment.
The stomach of the digester gives methane for cooking. and fertilizer for the garden.
