Hello everyone!

My name is Hampus and I am a mechanical engineering student from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden.
I am currently working on a master's thesis that is supposed to find a solutions for implementing a new promising efficient biogas technology into an household environment or similar.

I would really appreciate it if you could answer a couple of questions for me, below is a link to my survey.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/V2ZZ6V2

If you have any questions at all I would be glad to answer them.

Welcome to Permies, Hampus!

I did the survey, I hope it's of use to you.

Are you hoping to design a biogas digester to sell to people? I'm sure we'd all love to see what you have in mind and how you hope to use the information from your survey.

Hi Burra Maluca and thank you!

My task is to develop the physical interface for a newly developed biogas digester technology.
So the technology already exists, but the challenge is how to implement it and make it into a successful product.

Hello Hampus,

I took the survey but would suggest a clarification for in the first couple questions or additional questions. The clarification being on the word "gas", ie: do you use natural gas (methane), propane, biogas or syngas, not to be confused with gasoline. This would prevent confusion in my opinion, hopefully not add to it.

Oh, thank's for pointing that out. Of course it should be as you say, unfortunately I can't change it anymore. I can't afford to pay for a subscription for the survey site. So I can't access all the functions.

Hampus,
I took your survey, and wanted to bounce some things I am working on off you. I have a dog waste removal service, and was looking into creating small homestedd size methane digestors for the dog waste. I would be combined with other materials into the slurry. They have been created before, but I am not sure the technology created behind them. It seems like a simple model. Are you looking to create them and be able to distribute and sell them or is this just for school?

I'm sorry for the late reply.
This project is as far as my involvement just for school. But my work is meant to be a part of the puzzle to take this product to the market.
 
no wonder he is so sad, he hasn't seen this tiny ad:
