Focus Area:

Biogas Plant

Social Benefits:

Rated Capacity is 6m3/ day. But produces 10 m3/ day in winter and 14 m3/ day in summer , H: D ratio of the digester is 1:1 compared to conventional 1:2.3 , Less surface area, thus, less heat loss and higher efficiency (70%) , Posiibility of scaling up to industrial model / community scale , Suitable for higher water table region and hilly area , Less digester volume, less cost, less retention time, less feed requirement, higher methane content in Biogas (72%) and higher biogas prduction rate , Efficient mixing chamber with evenly distributed spikes , Ground level out let without any pipe and wider slurry tank for faster drying making it suitable as an excellent organic manure , Energy from waste, even adoptable in Farm and remote areas.
