The technology to produce biogas is not well spread in many countries due to
problems related to management and cost of construction. The polyethylene
biogas system offers a solution to these problems and combines the
environmennntal benefits of biodigestion with a low cost technology and easy
management. It solves management problems related to animal excrement while
offers benefits in the use of biogas as a of fuel and digested slurry as an
organic fertilizer. The simplicity of this technology is a critical point for
the extension of appropriate technologies that can be transfer from farmer to
farmer at a grass-root level.
