HOW TO MAKE BIOGAS
Would you like to make you own carbon neutral cooking gas?
Biogas (methane) is an environmentally friendly, carbon-neutral fuel that you can make with an old IBC tank, a few plumbing fittings, some cow manure, and the food waste from your kitchen (veg peelings etc.). It's biological alchemy and anyone can do it.
The video above is detailed and comprehensive (£3 to rent or £4 to buy forever), but if you want something more practical we also offer live courses on how to build, start and maintain your own biodigester using a demonstration unit that can be pulled apart and put back together as much as you like. This is a practical, hands-on course and also includes a look at Biff, the biodigester that's been producing biogas from food waste since 2018.
Courses run on an ad hoc basis rather than as scheduled events so they can be more tailored and personal. T0 book please send us a message and we'll arange a mutually convenient time.
WHEN: Whenever you want
WHERE: Beeview Farm, Newport, Pembrokeshire
(the course takes 2-3 hours)
HOW: To book please send us a message through the contact page
BIODIGESTER CONSTRUCTION KITS
We also supply kits for building your own biodigester system that include almost everything you might need except the IBC tanks (I'm afraid you're going to have to find those yourself). They include feed and waste pipes and fittings and all the right hole saws and uniseals.
We can supply everything else you might need as well, but some things depend on the type of IBC tanks involved and how far the biodigester is from where the gas will be used so we'll have to provide those seperately (it can get complicated).
PRICES - £110/Kit
They cost £100 if you come on a course though, so you may as well come on a course.
THE BIODIGESTER KIT INCLUDES:
Waste Pipe Fittings
Uniseals for Feed and Waste Pipes
Correct Hole Saws for each Uniseal size (+ Arbor)
IBC Tap Adaptor (for connecting the biodigester to the silo)
Gas Pipe Fittings (including for connecting to the hob)
IBC Tanks (look on eBay)
Gas Pipe (depends how much you need)
Odd fittings for unusual IBC tanks (some are weird)
