Make Biogas from Kitchen Waste at Home / Biogas from Cowdung
A portable biogas plant can be installed in all the houses and they can drop the daily generating food waste into the biogas digester. The digester is designed in such a way that the bio-methanation process will take place and food waste will be converted to methane and liquid manure. Liquid manure can be used as a biofertilizer by diluting it with an equal quantity of water.
We all know methane is one of the greenhouse gas causing climate change. Just like industries, every house is generating 2 to 5 kg of solid waste every day and they generate enough methane, which can fasten climate change.
Portable BIOGAS Plants
Portable biogas plants are built using Fiber-reinforced plastic and they can be fixed in a small area. Usually, water jacket models are most efficient among different designs. Here portable biogas plants having two portions, one is the digester, where the bio-methenization process occurs, and another portion where biogas is stored. Both the portions are separated using a water jacket, which is also acting as safety relief when excess gas is produced.
If we can install portable biogas plants household food waste including liquid waste will be converted into biogas. From a 1-meter cube biogas plant, nearly 1000 liters of methane can be capture. It can be equivalent to 14,000 liters of carbon dioxide .captured methane can be used as cooking fuel and it will burn up to 2 hours on a single burner stove.
What actions does FRD Biomech Company propose?
They propose to install a small biodigester across the state of Kerala. All the household food waste and bio-degradable waste are to be converted into methane. Nearly 2 crore houses are present in Kerala and each house can save nearly 250 Liters of methane. combinedly it will be a huge amount of CH4, if we can capture that methane using portable biogas plants, that will be a great movement against climate change.
For institutions, they can connect human excreta into one digester and that will reduce large quantities of methane emission into the atmosphere. If we can collect up to 10 tons of biodegradable waste, biogas which can be converted into electricity using generators. It can be suitable for communities that don’t have accessibility electric connection, especially for rural communities.
Who will take these actions?
It can be done by FRD Bio mech. Government can make mandatory laws to manage waste where it generates and give financial subsidies. Based on solid waste generating, institutions can be categorized. Subsidies and tax benefits also can be given depending upon the environmental impact scores.
Where will these actions be taken?
This can be done all across India and all around the planet. During the initial period, they are implementing in Kerala, one of the densest states of India where people don’t have enough space to dispose of their daily waste and depending heavily on firewoods to cook their meals.
What impact will these actions have on greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change?
Nearly 2 crores houses are in Kerala. Being one of the consumer-based economies of India. They have already installed many biogas digesters across Kerala. From their initial analysis, every house is generating nearly 2 kg of bio-degradable waste each day, which includes food waste.
From this waste, nearly 1000 Liters of biogas are generating and it will consist of 40 % of Methane. It will be around 250 Liters. When Combining these figures, it will be a huge quantity. FRD Bio mech company has biogas plants with different capacities. They give 25 years of warranty with each biogas plant.
They are already got positive results, so it can be implemented all across India and it will be the biggest Greenhouse reduction project in the world.
What are the key benefits of the Portable Biogas plant?
Apart from Methane capturing portable biogas plants will produce enough fuel to cook food for one family. In India, most of the families are still depend upon firewood and they generate much smoke to initiate lung cancer. Since methane is a gas that burns completely and doesn’t need much maintenance for the long run. Waste coming out from biogas plants can be used as organic fertilizer and it will boost organic farming in houses.
Hopefully, this technology continues to expand and receive both private and government support. Solutions that are easily adopted because of co-benefits, in this case, waste management, and lower energy costs, should be pursued in the effort to mitigate climate change. Biogas production through methane capture may only address a somewhat small percentage of global Greenhouse gas emissions, but these small percentages add up.

Most frequent questions and answers
Biogas is a renewable, as well as a clean, source of energy. Biogas plants significantly controls the greenhouse effect: the plants lower methane emissions by capturing this harmful gas and using it as fuel.
