Flexi-bag Biogas digester is full – Anafura kama mandazi!

Hi folks, it’s only been a week and my biogas digester looks – well positively like a mandazi (a donut like delicious breakfast bread – it’s 6 am and I’m hungry!).

I’m so chuffed with my biogas. Check it out

After 1 week it's looking dangerous - just hoping it wont explode while I'm away

Here it is on day 1.

We are on our way to northern Kenya and had to leave on Tuesday for the 2 day drive – before I left I went to check on my experiment which had gone disgusting, so I chucked it out.  Long story short – cow dung produces the most biogas, kitchen waste simply got fungus and consumed all the gas and sucked the condom into the cup – wondering what the hell I’m on about? Check out the experiment here.

  1. Hurry back…saw pic of your digester today…its fit to burst unless you start cooking soon.
    Interesting experiment.LMHO !! :)and useful.Amazing how useful condoms are…from party balloons to temporary fanbelts
    My load of mavi ya ngombe was delivered today ….digester will begin operating tomorrow 4thJune if I can pin the technician down.
    Have almost been convinced that this thing will run a generator.If that’s true it may be worth buying a cow and a generator just to do away with KP&L and it’s blackouts.
