Developing biogas reactors from textile for household applications


In this project we are going to develop a simple reactor and a more advanced one suitable for rapid digestion.

The goal of this project is to develop full scale digesting reactors from textile for biogas production from kitchen and garden wastes for households. A prototype in lab scale has been developed and should be scaled up to a volume of about 1.4 cubic meters. It should be examined for its functionality. In addition, a prototype will also be developed for rapid digestion, in which the reactor has an internal membrane to separate the digesting bacteria from the solid wastes inside the reactor.
A large interest has been shown for the reactor in Nigeria, Indonesia and Vietnam through Waste Recovery – International Partnership.

Project plan

  • Development of a prototype of a full-scale biogas reactor from textile for households including building the reactor and its examination and digestion process,
  • Development of a gas storage tank from textile for saving the gas in the time that is not being used,
  • Development of a prototype of a rapid digestion biogas reactor from textile for households including building the reactor and its examination and digestion process
