A crash course in changing the world.
Since I have 3 dogs in my house and they excrete everyday. I suddenly thought of "Why don't we reprocess dog's poo to create electricity, power generator or fuel?"
FACTS ABOUT POOP:
-As you know poop is usually used as a fertilizer and now we can create fuel from poop.
-Poop produces Bio-gas and we can produce electricity and heat because biogas is rich in methane.
-1.350 tonnes of dog poop made every day in Australia.
-Farmer can saves $200,000 with poo power a year.
-It takes the poo of 100,000 people to generate 51kw of electricity, enough for 500 light bulbs.
It will be heated in a big gallon tank for about 16 days while the bacteria break down the organic matter in order to produce methane gas. That gas is burned in two engine generators to make electricity.
First Process: The dung will stored in the Shed.
Second Process: Dung is fed into a digester tank where it's broken down by bacteria in the absence of oxygen.
Third Process: This produce biogas (a renewable gas) which is cleaned. Then compressed and sent to a CHP plant (gas utilization)
Forth Process: It also produces a 'digestate' which can be used as a compost or biofertilser.
AND THIS PROCESS IS CALLED : ANAEROBIC DIGESTION
