Need help with system setup for Bangladesh

Post by welshman » Tue Jun 15, 2004 3:40 am

Dear Sirs,

My name is Tom and I am emailing you from Wales in Great Britain. I
came across your company looking for a solution to a problem in Bangladesh.
My friend has a small village that he would like to supply gas for 1 burner
for 6 – 10 homes and possibly some small amounts of electricity as well.

He came to me with this problem and I hope you may have the answers that can help his small village out.

Currently there are 6 – 10 homes roughly in an area about one city block or
less. They have 10 – 12 cows producing manure but no other farm animals to
speak of…they are vegetarians and the cows are only for farming functions.
They would like to ‘pipe’ gas from a methane-generating tank into each home that would be located in the village.

Now, I am not sure if there would be enough excess methane to product any
electricity but even small amounts would go a long way in helping them out.

As for the local area the average temperature is 25-26 Celsius, with it
increasing to over 32 – 35 Celsius during the hotter parts of the year.

I look forward to any response as I am new to this field,
