Biogas

Biogas plant

CSR got involved in the manufacturing of biogas plants since the small farms operating in Auroville produced the basic input, cow dung, and were in need of energy.

Biogas designs existed and were developed in India as early as 1950. CSR's contribution in the field was an innovative combination of a renewable energy system with an appropriate building technology. The outcome was a modular prefabricated ferrocement biogas system suitable for small scale farm operations and producing biogas in the range of 2 to 4 m3 a day.

Advantages of prefabricated biogas plant are the corrosive resistant digester and gasholder.

The installation period is completed in one day.

The modular fabrication and production of quality controlled elements.

Two models exist: the floating drum of 2, 3 and 4 m3 and the Deenbandhu of 2 m.

Auroville Building Centre manufactures the ferrocement biogas plants even for the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. The marketing is done under Aurore Systems and Products.
