Abstract

This research presents the design of an automated system for obtaining biogas, mainly methane gas, through biodigesters. The anaerobic microorganisms present in the manure generate methane through their digestion, which is the main object of this study, since without this process it would not be possible to obtain natural gas. On the other hand, the system has 5 controlled processes that will complete the anaerobic digestion, namely: evaluation and positioning of manure, transmission belts and actuators that together separate the organic matter and begin with the filling of the biodigesters for the extraction of natural gas; additionally, there will be an adequate temperature control for the development of microorganisms, since at a higher temperature in its ideal environment, the gas will be obtained in less time, so the system will count and turn on heaters or fans based on the results. The objective of this process is to avoid exposure to the contagion of diseases in people and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
