Sewage Treatment

What are the three stages of sewage treatment • Primary Treatment: This sewage treatment involves removing floating solids by gravitational settling. The large solids are screened first then grease and scum are removed. After this, sand and other coarse substances are removed by grit chambers. The grit is then removed and screened. Wastewater is then […]

Biogas Production

Biogas Production

Biogas Generator This is a system of motors used to convert biogas into electricity. Biogas is a mixture of flammable gases, mostly methane. It also contains carbon dioxide that forms anywhere there is an anaerobic decomposition of organic matter. This could be in the water, in a landfill, or in the guts of animals, including […]

Bio-gas – How Invested is it in Kenya

Bio-gas Digester This simply means a tank that biologically digests organic material to produce bio-gas. However, most people think of it as a tank that digests organic material anaerobically without oxygen. The organic material produces methane gas which can be used for cooking, lighting, heating, etc. Bio-digesters can be installed for simple household uses. It […]

Septic Tank Facts

Septic Tank Definition A septic tank is basically an underground bioactive chamber. It is made of concrete, fibreglass or plastic. It intends to control, manage and most importantly treat waste material. The decomposition is based on anaerobic bacterial reaction. As a result, solids and organics materials reduce to liquid. The water leaves it through the […]

Biogas Digesters

Biogas Digesters

What are Biogas digesters Biogas digesters are devices that carry out anaerobic fermentation on organic waste to release methane gas and produce biogas. The most common types of biogas digesters are wet biodigesters. This is because they digest liquefied manure on farms. Most people prefer wet bio-digesters in removing methane from manure so they can […]
