Biogas is a by-product generated during the decomposition of any kind of organic matter by means of anaerobic bacteria.
Biogas is mostly of 50-75% methane, 25-40% CO2 and other traces of moisture, H2S, Nitrogen, Oxygen & Hydrogen.
Biogas is a clean and renewable energy source which substitutes LPG and CNG for cooking, steam generation, transportation fuel, electricity generation, etc.,
At room pressure and temperature biogas is in gaseous form, not liquid like LPG (propane).
Biogas can be produced by the decomposition of any kind of organic waste. Few examples are as mentioned below.
1. Kitchen Waste like food waste, Fruit and Vegetable waste, etc.,
2. Farm manure like Cow dung, Poultry litter, Horse dung, Pig manure, etc.
3. Industrial Waste like Food processing industrial waste, Meat packing waste, Fish packaging industry waste, Dairy industry waste, Tapioca industrial waste, Sugar factory wastes like Press Mud, Bagasse wash water & Molasses, Brewery & Distillery waste, etc.
4. Agricultural Waste like Green Grass, Corn Waste, Harvest residues, Whole crop fodder, etc.,
The amount of biogas you can extract from your organic waste depends on the quantity of waste. Around 6-10 kg of food & vegetable waste can generate 1 m3 of biogas.
Yes. You can directly feed the kitchen waste in to the biodigester through the inlet pipe. Make sure that the particle is smaller in size so that it should easily pass through the inlet pipe into digester.
1 m3 of biogas can be generated from 20-25 kg of cow dung.
1 m3 of biogas is equivalent to 0.5 kg of LPG which will continuously burn in a single biogas burner for around 2 hrs.
1m3 biogas plant replaces 1 domestic LPG cylinder per month.
After Digestion, the compost will come out of the digester through the Outlet pipe automatically.
Despite popular belief that the amount of waste going in the digester is almost equal to the amount coming out, the quality of the waste is altered for the better (less odour, better fertilizer, organic load reduced, less polluting).
Waste coming out of the digester can be directly used as organic fertilizer (after mixing with water in the ratio of 1:10) in Gardens & Farms.
The generated biogas will be stored in the gas holder fitted along with the bio digester. As you are outstation you will not feed it & so, no more excess gas will be produced.
The gas generated will get stored in the Gas holder and the excess gas generated will escape out through the water jacket portion of the biogas plant easily.
Not at all. The Biogas is highly safer than LPG. Density of LPG is heavier than air. When LPG is leaked, it flows for long distances along the ground (Downward direction), and can collect in drains, gullies and cellars which causes explosion.
Unlike LPG, the density of biogas is lighter than air. When Leaked, biogas moves in the upward direction in air and easily mixes in the atmosphere.

It is strongly recommended to keep the biogas plant as close as possible to the burner in order to avoid pressure drop.
Biogas Plant can be placed anywhere.
» Partially below the ground level
» Above the ground level
» In terrace It is recommended to keep the biogas plant in open place exposed to sunlight.
Nylon threaded flexible gas hose.
No. Biogas can be lighted only using match box or biogas lighter.
No. B-Sustain Biogas plants are made of FRP material which can resist ultraviolet radiation longer than poly tanks as they have a gel coating and tested for heavy impact on weather loads (such as cold & heat).
Yes. It can be relocated easily from one location to another, any number of times.
Cow dung is used as the initial start-up (microbial charging) for the first time only.
After feeding initial start-up, it takes minimum 15 days and maximum 30 days for using the biogas for the first time only. Then after, Biogas can be generated within time duration of 12-15 hrs after feeding the digester.
Do not use Papers, Plastics, Glasses, Sand, Stones, Chemicals and Metal particles, Bones, Dry leaves, Stems & Sticks, Pseudo stem (Banana stem), Egg shells, Fibres (like Drumstick skin, climbers, etc.,), Acidic materials (like Tamarind, Lemon Peels, Orange Peels, etc.,) , Soaps & Detergents.
There will be rotten egg smell when the biogas leaks.
