Supergas

Quite innovative and "open-source" re-design of the HH bio-gas plant. Promises by utilizing a gas pressure driven mixing mechanism to provide 2-3 times as much bio-gas as a regular non mixed system.

Maybe to complex for many settings (requires three tanks, but no mechanical parts), but for a local business oriented approach it might work.

They seem to have some pilot projects already running and an attempt to scale up production in Mexico, so it might be worth keeping an eye on this.

Open-source manual attached below ;)

60 kg a day to run it... sounds like a lot, but I guess this depends on the scale of the project.
