Frequently Asked Questions
1) Is HomeBiogas Safe?
HomeBiogas is not only safe, it is safer than LPG and propane for several reasons.
1. Methane needs a very high concentration (50%) in a very small space to be flammable. That means that the moment it gets released into the air it loses its ability to ignite. The HomeBiogas unit is recommended for outdoor use only to ensure that any potential gas leak diffuses into the atmosphere instantaneously.
2. Methane is lighter than air. Unlike LPG and propane, which sink to the ground and stay in a given space, biogas diffuses upwards to the sky leaving the premise immediately
3. If surplus gas accumulates, HomeBiogas has a slow release valve to release pressure gradually (and therefore preventing flammability).
4. Biogas is not compressed; therefore, the amount of gas you have at a full tank of HomeBiogas is a relatively small quantity compared to gas cylinders. At the unlikely change that the system leaks and ignites, it can only produce a momentary flame.
5. Furthermore, the gas tank sits on top of the liquid digestion tank (700 liters). At the off-chance that a system found a way to produce a fire, the water would also put it out immediately.
2) What about cold weather?
The gas-producing bacteria function best at temperatures above 20 ºC. For temperatures between 3 ºC and 20 ºC, an aquarium water heater can be installed. The system cannot be installed where temperatures drop below freezing.
3) Can HomeBiogas work on my stove?
Any gas stove can be adapted for biogas by removing the pressure nozzle. However, a single stovetop unit (with one entry pipe) cannot be fed by both biogas and LPG/Propane gas.
4) Does HomeBiogas smell?
HomeBiogas is a smell-free system. The HomeBiogas unit is completely sealed, and has two filters- one to clean gas from hydrogen sulfide and one at the fertilizer output.
