Does anyone have a design of a biogas plant? Please help.

    Does anyone has a design of a type-small one stage biogas plant (CAD). Does anyone know how long will it take to get methane out from the fermentation plant? Please help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Two quick points:

    You would probably do better in the chemistry forum.

    There was a lot of interest in methane generation and anerobic digesters back in the 1970s(remember the Opec embargo). If you can find them you might try "Mother Earth News" during those years; they had a lot of related articles during that period in sort of a do-it-yourself vein. As I dimly recall, the digester period was probably somewhere around thirty days.
