Soaring fuel prices that continue to make the user feel anxious and blamed the government that he is less concerned with the public, especially lower classes (like me). No less a demo guerrilla demands fuel price lowered. But you know, if this problem can be fix or set up. The making is easy and affordable. The material can be updated as well. His name is "biogas reactors".

Biogas reactors gas generator is a tool made from cattle dung, inventors are Andrew Wiji Setio Pamudji. A man who comes from Ngerendeng Village, sub Sine, Ngawi regency, East Java - Indonesia.

This discovery began when he was still studying at level III in the Department of Chemical Engineering Department of Industrial Engineering Bandung Institute of Technology circa 2000s. At that time he was researching construction of simple biogas reactor. But this comes from simple things that can become a gas. Because already know, then increasingly passionate curiosity.

Manure obtained from a farm in jerry can enter into the measuring five meters and then shut down and not mixed with anything. After that there will be a natural fermentation of cattle dung are then turned into gas. A month later the hole closed containers to be opened and immediately given a plastic jerry cans, and then Andrew holing plastic with sharp objects and out of gas. As a result when a match lit on fire immediately. For the sake of perfecting his work he formed the reactor and gas reservoir of cheap, strong and sufficient capacity when used for domestic purposes.

Andrias efforts paid off in cash when he made the reactor from the plastic with a thickness of 250 micron and create methane gas stove to type. Why chosen as the reservoirs were plastic and not the other? Because the gas produced has not been able to be packed in a tube. Cow dung gas is a type of methane (CH4). While gas is packed in a tube that can be liquefied gases, which come from butane (C4H10) and pentane (C5H12).

If the gas can be liquefied, then the amount of volume that can be accommodated so much more. Unfortunately, methane can not be the case. The findings of the new Andrew marketed three years later, on 9 April 2005. Yet two years since occupied, namely in 2002, his work has won the race creativity of students who held the Directorate of Higher Education Department of Education.
