 From kitchen waste to alternative source of gas
The Philippine STAR, Thursday, March 22, 2007

"The Industrial Technology Development Institute (ITDI) produced an
environment-friendly portable biogas digester that can store more than
211 liters of biodegradable kitchen waste which, when processed, can
produce 350 liters of biogas for cooking with efficiency similar to
regular LPG.

The drum-type biogas digester is an airtight, oxygen free vessel fed
with organic materials where the microbial digestion takes place to
produce the biogas. Materials needed for conversion to gas are kitchen
waste and animal manure blended with water."
