After the disaster it was obvious from the outset that rebuilding a technological society could only be achieved slowly, utilizing materials that could be worked easily, such as wood (readily worked with the simplest of tools), copper and brass--both malleable metals that can be worked and shaped cold. The new technology was, in fact, that of an earlier time, when gentlemen inventors produced the designs in their libraries and the artisans gave these designs shape and form in their small workshops. It was important then and now that these machines be simple, reliable and easily repaired by the customer.
The Biogas converter uses bacteria (a harmless version of a strain from the Old World) to break down all forms of biological and domestic waste and produce a useful gas - predominately hydrogen with a small amount of methane - that can be used directly for heating and cooking, and indirectly for generating electricity.
The Biogas Converter can supply the gas and generating needs of anything from a single home to a small community.
