Code of Practice for design and construction of biogas system: Part 1 – Domestic biogas systems

This code of practice is aimed at standardization of stand-alone domestic biogas systems for Sri Lanka in order to suit the needs of biogas generation, manure production, hygiene effects, operational and maintenance aspects. This code prescribes up to two metric tons dry batch digester and six to twelve cubic meters continuous flow biogas digesters.

This was approved by the technical advisory committee on biogas standards appointed by Sri Lanka Standard Institute in collaboration with Practical Action and was authorized for adoption and publication as a Sri Lanka Standard by the council of the Sri Lanka Standard Institution on 2006.08.24.

This code of practice can be obtained from the Sri Lanka Standard Institute (SLSI)
