Hi Binaya and Richard,

the biogas to be obtained could be up to 350 m3 Biogas per day with a methane content of about 60%. This means you could run an engine of around 40 kW size and produce electricity for 80 family homes (European style living).

To bottle the gas you would need to compess to 200 bar and you would need to clean the biogas and upgrade it to pure methane, which is very costly. To be able to do that you would need about 10 times as much biogas.

Where are you stationed. If you are in South Africa we might be able to help you with a training course which we are conducting from 10 to 12 december in Cape Town. More see on our website
