Developing biogas reactors from textile for household applications
Start date: 2012-09-01
End date: 2013-08-31
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.
- 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
