Abstract

In order to meet society's energy needs and provide an alternative source of energy for cooking, biogas, a renewable energy source, was produced. This research assembled a biogas technology that produced, purified and compressed biogas into Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinder using a fabricated proto type hand compressor. Farm animal wastes from Department of Agricultural Education, Federal College of Education (Technical), Bichi was collected, dissolved in water and used as substrate for the digester, the substrate then undergoes fermentation in the absence of oxygen by process of anaerobic digestion. The biogas produced in the digester was channeled to the purification facility where Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) were removed from the biogas, the purified biogas was stored in the storage tank and then compressed into the LPG cylinder by a proto hand compressor. The biogas produced was combustible when subjected to a flame test. This research is the first attempt to provide solution to the problem of manually compressing biogas to LPG cylinder.
