Mini bio fuel gas turbine

Mini bio fuel gas turbine

A gas turbine, also called a combustion turbine, is a type of internal combustion engine. It has an upstream rotating compressor coupled to a downstream turbine, and a combustion chamber in-between. In the mini biogas fuel turbines, we would rotate the turbine using the energy of biofuel gas.

Biofuel is a type of fuel whose energy is derived from biological carbon fixation. Biofuels include fuels derived from biomass conversion, as well as solid biomass, liquid fuels, and various biogases.
In this project, we would use biogas as a fuel.

Merits of biogas

Biogas is produced by the anaerobic digestion or fermentation of biodegradable materials such as biomass, manure, sewage, municipal waste, green waste, plant material, and crops. Moreover, biogas has 60 % of Methane gas which can be used as productive gas to rotate a turbine.  To read more about biogas uses click here.


When we fill the dump or waste in the tank , and cover it tightly to cut the supply of oxygen, bacteria start producing methane gas inside the tank. By connecting this tank with the tube we can use this methane gas. In this project, we would use this gas to generate electricity.
