Free life time supply of renewable natural gas for your homes and cottagesGetting Off Oil, World news Sunday, February 23rd, 2014
You and millions of people in Canada, the United States, South America, Africa, Australia, Europe and Asia can generate a free life time supply of renewable and unmetered natural gas for your homes and cottages. You can very easily produce your own life time supply of environmentally friendly natural gas in your own back yard and fuel your gas furnace, gas fireplace, gas electrical power generator, gas stove, or other gas fueled appliances using your existing septic tank. The free natural gas fuel called biogas (CH4 – methane) is already being generated 24/7, 365 days a year and for the rest of your life by your existing septic tank. You only need to enhance its production by adding a catalyst – a small amount of natural enzymes like brewers yeast – that will enhance the rate of chemical reaction and break down of the biomass (organic matter) in the septic tank into a free natural gas fuel. In order to use this free life time supply of natural gas you will need to connect a natural gas collector to your septic tank system. In a matter of hours you can build your very own natural gas well and start using your free life time supply of unmetered natural gas fuel.
You can build your very own natural gas well and start producing and collecting your year round free supply of natural gas simply by adding a biogas collector to your exiting septic system. A biogas collector is placed on top of your existing septic tank to collect and store the natural gas that is being produced naturally and perpetually by your septic tank. You can use any large “airtight” plastic or metal container (even a plastic fuel tank or furnace oil tank) as your biogas collector. Join your septic tank to the collector using mass produced flexible plumbing tubing. Run a length of pipe from the top of the collector to just above ground height. Attach a gas regulator value (like the ones used for barbecues) and a safety blow off valve to the top of the pipe to control the gas flow or shut it off and on. Fill in with dirt and let mother nature generate a “lifetime supply” of free environmentally friendly natural gas.
Build a stone well flower bed or lay a concrete culvert directly above the biogas collector and use it as a natural gas well head and provide easy access and maintenance to your natural gas well surface piping.
Biogas is a gas produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Organic waste such as dead plant and animal material, animal feces, and kitchen waste can be converted into a gaseous fuel called biogas. Biogas originates from biogenic material and is a type of bio fuel.
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.
The gases methane, hydrogen, and carbon monoxide (CO) produced is combustible. This energy release allows biogas to be used as a fuel. Biogas can be used as a fuel in any country for any heating purpose, such as home heating and cooking. It can also be used in anaerobic digesters where it is typically used in a gas generator to convert the energy in the gas into electricity. Biogas can even be compressed, much like natural gas, and used to power your motor vehicles.
Rural dwellers from around the World can reduce their fuel and home heating and electrical power costs simply by collecting, storing and burning the biogas that is created naturally in their septic tanks. This free biogas can fuel a gas furnace, gas fireplace, gas generator, or other gas fueled appliances.
Using biogas generated naturally from septic tanks and manure anabolic digestion has an added ecological benefit too. Burning biogas can help reduce global climate change. Normally, septic sewage and manure that is left to decompose releases two main gases that contributes to global climate change: nitrogen dioxide and methane. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and methane both warms the atmosphere. By converting septic sewage and manure into a methane biogas fuel via anaerobic digestion, the millions of cows in the United States would be able to produce one hundred billion kilowatt hours of electricity, enough to power millions of homes across the United States. Furthermore, by using manure as a methane biogas fuel instead of letting it decompose, we would be able to reduce global warming gases by ninety-nine million metric tons. There are over 300 million people in the United States. They could potentially produce 300 times more electrical power than cows or 3 trillion kilowatt hours of electricity - enough to power every home in the United States.
The key to generating biogas through anabolic digestion in a septic tank is to remove as much excess liquid waste from the septic tank as possible. The easiest step to take to insure the septic tank isn’t flooded is to use less and waste less water. Too much water will reduce the biogas generation.
One way to ensure greater biogas production is to periodically pump as much of the waste water (sewage slurry) from the tank, as possible. Incorporating a sewage pump – a type of sump pump that is intended for use with waste water – into your septic tank biogas generating system will increase the biogas production. As the pump (only should be done periodically) removes excessive waste water from the top of the solid sewage it will also create a vacuum in the tank. That is an added benefit as biogas is produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the “absence of oxygen” – in other words in a vacuum. Where do you pump the excess waste water? To your pre-existing septic bed (also called a drain field). The liquid waste or effluent already flows out of the tank and evenly distributed into the soil through the septic bed.
Never pour chemical household or septic tank cleaners like CLR (contains Water, Lactic Acid (OSHA Hazard), Gluconic Acid, Lauryldimethyl Hydroxysulaine, and Propylene Glycol Normal Butyl Ether (OSHA Hazard) into your septic tank system if you want to produce your very own life time supply of unmetered natural gas. CLR kills the microorganism and enzymes that naturally and perpetually breaks down the biomass in your septic tank into a free life time supply of natural gas. Chemicals like CLR are not environmentally friendly. They not only kill the microorganism and enzymes in your septic tank system, which are needed to produce natural gas by breaking down biomass, they kill all of the microorganism and enzymes in the soil above rendering your land dead. If you ever want to grow your own food in your backyard or farm fields CLR will kill the soil and you will not be able to grow any nutrient rich fruits or vegetables as the fruit and vegetables get their nutrients from the soil.
Free electrical energy from your own septic tank battery
You can also use your septic tank as an earth battery and generate electrical power. An Earth battery is a pair of electrodes made of two dissimilar metals, such as iron and copper, which are buried in the soil or immersed in the sea (salt) or other acidic liquid (lemon juice, vinegar, sulfuric acid, uric acid etc.,). Earth batteries act as water activated batteries and if the plates are sufficiently far apart, they can tap electrical currents. Earth batteries have been used for centuries, but it more recent times they were used in the 1800′s to power telegraph stations.
Daniel Drawbaugh received U.S. Patent 211,322 for an Earth battery for electric clocks (with several improvements in the art of Earth batteries). Another early patent was obtained by Emil Jahr U.S. Patent 690,151 Method of utilizing electrical Earth currents). In 1875, James C. Bryan received U.S. Patent 160,152 for his Earth Battery. In 1885, George Dieckmann, received US patent U.S. Patent 329,724 for his Electric Earth battery. In 1898, Nathan Stubblefield received U.S. Patent 600,457 for his electrolytic coil battery, which was a combination of an earth battery and a solenoid.
Most batteries sold and bought today work as a result of a chemical reaction that occurs inside the batteries. Car batteries makes us of this chemical reaction to provide electrical power for your car’s electrical systems – lights, radio etc. Sulfuric acid is used and combined with water to produce electrolytes. Electrolytes is required to produce a chemical reaction. Electrolytes can be produced without using the extremely corrosive and highly toxic sulfuric acid. Lemon juice, vinegar and our excrements that are flushed down the toilet and into septic tanks can also be used to produce electrolytes.
The lemon battery that some of us made for a school project is similar to the first electrical battery invented in 1800 by Alessandro Volta, who used brine (salt water) instead of lemon juice. The lemon battery is described in textbooks in order to illustrate the type of chemical reaction (oxidation-reduction) that occurs in batteries. The “acidic” juice inside the lemon that causes a chemical reaction is called an electrolyte.
When zinc (or iron) and copper metal plates or rods are immersed in an electrolyte, energy can be obtained and generated. The stronger electrical currents flow from south to north. This phenomenon possesses a considerable uniformity of current strength and voltage. As the Earth currents flow from south to north, electrodes are best positioned, beginning in the south and ending in the north, to increase the voltage at as large a distance as possible.
It has been found that all the common metals behave relatively similarly. The two spaced electrodes (metal plates or rods), having a load in an external circuit connected between them, are disposed in an electrical medium, and energy is imparted to the medium in such manner that “free electrons” in the medium are excited. The free electrons then flow into one electrode to a greater degree than in the other electrode, thereby causing electric current to flow in the external circuit through the load. The current flows from that plate whose position in the electropotential series is near the negative end . The current produced is highest when the two metals are most widely separated from each other in the electropotential series, and when the material nearer the positive end is to the north, while that at the negative end is towards the south. The plates, one copper and another iron or carbon, are connected above ground by means of a wire with as little resistance as possible. In such an arrangement, the electrodes are not appreciably chemically corroded, even when they are in earth saturated with water, and are connected together by a wire for a long time.
Because acidic human waste (uric acid) is created daily and added to the septic tank your septic tank can also be used as a battery and generate free electrical energy for years. All you need to do is what the telegraph company did in the 1800s or what kids do at school to demonstrate electrical power using lemons – immerse a couple of electrodes (thin copper and iron rods or pipes) into the ground and into your uric acid (electrolyte) septic tank and make your own “life long” septic tank battery. If your car’s lead acid battery can store electricity so can your septic tank. Instead of using sulfuric acid that is used in car batteries another acid, uric acid, is used and combined with water to produce electrolytes.
A septic tank battery will never go dead as long as you keep on recharging it simply by going to the bathroom and flushing new electrolytes into it.
Septic tank natural gas fuel cell construction basics
Building your own septic tank natural gas fuel cell (battery) is pretty simple because you already have most of the major components. Your septic tank is already laid in the ground and most today look like the image below. Today, most septic tanks are made of prefab concrete. They will most likely have 2 compartments built-in like shown in the image. The larger one is were all of the solid waste settles and the smaller one is mostly liquid waste that eventually drains out into your already laid septic bed. The tank is covered with a concrete slab, shown to scale in the image below. The cover already has 2 – 24″ clean out holes and some also have smaller inspection holes. You will need to excavate the earth away from the top of the septic tank in order to lay the collector on top of your septic tank and affix 2 electrodes into it.
There are very few components that you will need to acquire to make your own septic tank natural gas fuel cell – see image below. The most important component that you will need to acquire before you start construction your own natural gas well is the collector. A half sized oil drum, automobile gas tank (new or used) or furnace oil tank will work as will a large air tank (new or used) from an air compressor or tractor trailer air brake system. All are already mass produced and can be bought cheaply from major suppliers or from junk yards.
You will also need a gasket or tube of tar to seal the collector over the clean-out opening of the septic tank cover. You will also need 2 electrodes (metals rods) if you want your septic tank to also function as uric acid battery. They need to be long enough to be completely immersed vertically into the uric acid (electrolyte) inside the septic tank and also stick out from the ground once you fill in and cover the tank and collector with dirt. 1/8″, 1/4″, 3/8″ or 5/16″ solid metal rods can be bought at major hardware chains or metal vendors. Make sure you don’t buy two of the same metal rods. One has to copper and the other iron, zinc or stainless steel.
To install the natural gas collector requires no drilling into the septic tank cover whatsoever. The natural gas collector is laid on top of the cover directly over one of the 24″ septic tank clean-out openings. You will need to remove the cover from the opening you want to lay the collector over. Warning – it is going to smell really, really bad when you lift that cover.
For illustration purposely I placed the natural gas collector over the opening directly above the larger septic tank compartment. You can place the collector over the other hole. Before laying your collector directly over one of the septic tank clean-out openings make sure you have a small hole on the bottom of the collector. Why? How else is the natural gas going to rise up into the collector. It doesn’t need to be a big hole. The smaller the hole the greater the natural gas pressure inside the collector. If you chose to use an automobile gas tank as your collector place the gas tank upside down over the opening as the gas tank already has a hole where a fuel pump would normally be installed if you installed it in a car or truck. You can then use the gasoline filling hole of the automobile gas tank and attach a natural gas line from it to the surface.
To ensure a proper seal between the septic tank cover and the natural gas collector lay a big enough and thick enough gasket on top of the cover before you lay the collector on top of it. You can also lay a thick bead of tar from a caulking tube if you can’t get the right size gasket that fits around the 24″ clean-out opening. The weight of the earth that you fill in the hole and cover the tank and collector with will keep the collector in place for a long time.
Before you fill everything in you will need to attach fitting to the top of your natural gas collector. What size and type of fittings depends on what you use as you natural gas collector and what you use for tubing. If you use 3/4″ flexible tubing you will need fittings that are made to properly connect with the 3/4″ tubing. If your collector already has pre-drilled holes that are threaded your construction will be much easier. If your collector has no holes on top you will need to commit a little more time and drill and install fittings.
After you attach the proper fittings (the right ones for the tubing you plan on using) to the topside of the natural gas collector you will need to run a length of flexible tubing (i.e. pex gas pipe) from the fitting to the surface. The flexible tubing that runs from the collector to the surface shouldn’t be any bigger than 3/4″. On the surface make sure you attach a shutoff valve to the surface end of your tubing. You don’t want you free natural gas to leak out before you can use it.
Once the construction is completed and everything is properly installed and firmly attached fill in the excavated hole and landscape so that your nosy neighbor(s) and municipal extortionists can’t see what you’ve made.
Let the natural gas collect in the collector for a week or two before you start using it. The natural gas is produced naturally, day and night, 24/7 and 365 days a year and with no interaction from you. More natural gas is produced in the summer months than in the winter months because the outside temperature dictates how much natural gas is produced and how quickly.
