Biodigestor Definition
An organic waste digester or biodigester in his basic form is a hermetic impermeable and closed container (commonly called reactor), in which the organic material is fermented  (human and animal manure, a vegetable plant waste which does not included citric) to be able this happen   is necessary to diluted in water the organic waste.  This process produced methane and organic fertilizers who are rich in nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus. 

This system can also include a charge chamber to pump the wastewater in to the digester. The digester also included a gas chamber to storage the biogas and the hidropresure for water post treatment (an algae filter, among others), at the reactor outlet.

The biodigestion phenomenon exist because a group of anaerobic bacteria microorganism presents inside the fecal matter react with the organic waste produce a high mix combination of methane (ch4) called biogas, this biogas is an efficient biofuel.   As a result of this process the residual water has a high level of nutrients and organic matter, which can by applied in his fresh form.

This anaerobic process avoids bad odors and fly proliferation. It is necessary to control specific conditions of pH, pressure and temperature to obtain the maximum performance.

The biodigester is a simple and economical system, which can be added to rural communities all around the world. This system can also can resolve the energetic problem in these communities and improve the environment.

EFM has the engineering techniques and technology to develop quickly, efficiently and economically this kind of projects.
