Organic Farming Part I - 'Organic Farming'

Organic Farming Part II - 'Cow dung to biogas' 


Like many organic farmers, Jose Elanjhimattam is both a practical and abundantly resourceful man. Starting with cow dung, Jose has created an ingenious system that simultaneously captures and separates nitrogen-rich organic manure and methane gas. Unlike dried cow dung, which tends to lose nitrogen throughout the drying process, the liquefied organic manure produced through Joses slurry provides soil with far higher levels of nitrogen. Additionally, the methane gas removed is used as a form of fuel. Jose estimates that the dung from two cows is sufficient to provide enough biogas to support the cooking requirements of a family of four. Resourceful, intelligent, simple great stuff!

good old cow dung.
vidaripollen 4 months ago

It would work with old dung, if the sufficient amount of water is added.

No it doesn't smell because the gases are contained in the underground system. The gas is only let out as methane gas to a burner, and when methane is burning it doesn't smell unpleasant.
ukiahhaiku 5 months ago

Does this system attracts flies and mosquitos?

I am guessing it would smell aweful. Let alone the cow dung smells, added with water and stirred!

Is fresh dung used in this system or the methane can be extracted from old dung?

Love it!

Don't they also use dead animals and vegetable waste in addition to cow dung?

@ukiahhaiku what is the cost of this project

@svtuition 60 bucks, I really like this idea. I give credit where do. Fantastic = )

great, but how to use colelcted gas in my cooking purposes. Can I keep it cylinder
svtuition 1 year ago


The gas collected in the dome of the tank. There was no storage. The pressure from the tank pushed the gas the 50m distance to the kitchen. The flow of the gas was regulated by a tap on the kitchen wall.

@ukiahhaiku Thanks for the video, but his wife is cooking with charcoal and he is preaching biogas cooking lol quite ironic.

How safe or dangerous is this? How much damage can a cigarette but do?

Thanks u for sharing that info with us and love how it is simple and useful everything is used back in a natural way.

sir 12000 indian ruppee in usd is 300usd and u said 60 usd for 12000

ur wrong in maths though good in science lol
venushole2001 2 years ago

how bout this: they take all the vegetation and grain the bull eats in a year and dry and prepare it for fuel bricks. And get some boots to walk around in the dung.

Brilliant!!! I think we should be using similar concept and process in America.

This is great, but I do have a question:

Can human waste be used as well?
HanakoFairhall 3 years ago

Human waste can be used. The slurry from human waste can contain salmonella, so it needs a quarantine period of about one year after adding to the soil before the crops are harvested.
ukiahhaiku 3 years ago

I confess, I didn't factor in Salmonella, though there's something I've also thought about, what if cow, or human dung(well, the gases generated) were used as an alternative fuel for cars?
HanakoFairhall 3 years ago

Many people use the human dung too.

Very interesting! Thank you for the post!

Great idea. I was bit confused about the slurry. How did they remove the slurry after firmentation of 45 days. Is the old slurry being pushed out with the new one? Thanks for the information.
mercedesdiesel 3 years ago

Thanks for the feedback.

The slurry of dung and water ferments in the tank, and the pressure of the biogas produced pushes the slurry out the other end (in this case along the trench and into a collecting area)
dallefia1 3 years ago

Interesting. Is it sloped downwards towards the exit or is the floor of the dome tank area and exit channel completely horizontal?
rif42 2 years ago

I am not 100% sure, I think it is horizontal and the pressure from the gas pushes it out. I will see if I can find out and get back to you.
ukiahhaiku 2 years ago


The gas pressure generated in the fermentation tank will push on both input and exit channel. I think it will be important that the pressure needed to push out the exit channel is much lower than that of the input channel, so a sloping floor could assure that. Looking forward to your further info.
rif42 2 years ago

Im pretty sure there is a lever that you open every 45 days to let the slurry out, since it has completed its fermentation. almost. the shoot comes out from the bottom of the Egg then into the pit.
georgemwg 2 years ago

wow this is wonderful. I want to build one for myself now!! We have 2 cows. we need to get this going everywhere. Can't you use that type of gas to run cars too? If you convert the car?

I wish we could do this in Hawaii (U.S.A.)
