Tom Kendall from the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast talks shows the end result of the Bio Digester setup: the gas. He also talks about and shows making thatch for a roof from vetiver grass. http://www.permaculturesunshinecoast.org
Tom Kendall from the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast describes the process after the cow manure goes through the biodigester. The biodigester compost pits and reed bed are shown and how he generates soil fertility through the cycling process is discussed.
Tom Kendall from the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast shows the process for feeding the biodigester in the morning.
Between manure collection and feeding the biodigester, the cow gets milked and checked for ticks. This video shows some of the process.
Tom Kendall from the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast shows the first part of the morning routine to feed the biodigester which makes biogas for cooking.
Tom Kendall talks about what the next step is for the Biogas Bio Digester at his Permaculture Demonstration Site "Maungaraeeda", which is the location of the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast. The Bio Digester already creates enough gas to cook some meals on, but it is ready for the next step to increase gas production.
Tom Kendall discusses the systems in place to improve the poor quality soil at Maungaraeeda, home of the Permaculture Research Institute Sunshine Coast. He also mentions future plans and improvements.
Biogas project: Concreting the dome roof of the biodigester.
On the 18th of March we started our Biogas project. This project involves making a bio-digester which will turn manure into methane gas for cooking and other energy needs. Tom had to re-do some fencing and clear the site for the bio-digester. He calculated that with the amount of manure we are getting (around 30kg …
For some years now we have been looking at minimising our energy consumption, and at alternative forms of energy creation in order to produce the energy we need. As we have animal systems in place here at PRI Sunshine Coast, we have a fair bit of manure on the property. As well as animal manure, …
