Design and development of kitchen waste biogas plant

Type:  Product
IPR Status:  Others
Secured In:  India

Generation of high quality manure, which would be weedless and an excellent soil conditioner. One kg kitchen waste produces 0.5 m3 biogas. Methane burns with a blue flame without producing any smoke or soot. For a typical urban household, biogas (having CV of almost 6600 kCal / kg) saves about 100 kg of LPG or 250 litres of kerosene per year, which is equivalent to 300 kg to 600 kg of carbon dioxide (CO2) per year.

    Salient Technical Competing Features: 


    1. Combined advantages of fixed dome type and floating drum type biogas plant
    2. Online and offline use of gas
    3.  Movable
    4.  Protected Storage
    5.  Solid state fermentation
    6. Manual slurry churning system
    7. Slurry drying not required
    8. In built scrubbing system for methane enrichment
    9. Zero electrical power requirement
    10. Equipped with manual feed stock shredding system
    Environmental Consideration: 

    A substantial portion of food waste is biodegradable (38-40%) which can be used to generate methane. Environment friendly disposal of waste, which is need of hour considering mass pollution everywhere. Generation of fairly good amount of fuel gas for cooking, which will definitely support the dwindling energy resources and provide self-reliance to the households for cooking.

    Status of Commercialization:  Ready for technology transfer
    Techno Economic:  Available on enquiry basis.
    Technology Package:  Complete manufacturing drawing & Technological Knowhow
    Level/Scale of Development:  Production ready
    TRL:  TRL 7
