Powering an Engine with Biogas: How Much Biogas will You Need to Produce Daily? - Henlus - 03-29-2015

If you want to use your biogas digester to power an engine, it should be producing at least10 meter cube of biogas per day. To generate 1 kWh (kilowatt hour) of electricity with a generator, about 1m[sup]3[/sup] biogas is required. So the 10m[sup]3[/sup] biogas will generate 10kwh of electricity.

Thanks. I think it also depends on methane content of the biogas.

If people can run petrol gen on cooking gas, it is also possible to do same with biogas. Great idea.
