Construction

The system uses flexible bags for the digester and for the gas storage. The digester is connected with the gas storage over a gas filter. The gas storage is pressured using weight bags. On the one side we have inlet and on the other we have an outlet. In order to have the bags sit on each other a frame is supplied. The frame is surrounded by walls. The hole system comes as DIY KIT.

  • A DIY KIT makes easy for anyone to build and it cuts shipping costs

Cons

  • Limited in capacity, Only 1m³
  • Heating and temperature keeping might be difficult
