I'm doing this already in a small scale experiment. Every farter in our village carries a small pressure container to release his gases. When the container is full the gas is fed into a liquidizer and used for cooking.
Interesting... your community must look quite strange and silly with folks walking around holding a container against their ass. Tell me, is it better to drop one's pants to improve collection efficiency or does clothing have little impact on gas cloud diffusion? What about the obese and elderly who cannot reach behind themselves? Does your community employ public servants to collect the valuable energy resource? Converting the collected gas into liquid methane must be an amazing process to witness. Can you explain how your community deals with the release of high CO2 emissions into the atmosphere as a result of methane combustion? The social structure and scientific tenacity of third-world nations is both fascinating and inspiring.Every farter in our village carries a small pressure container to release his gases.

Hi HiTech,Interesting... your community must look quite strange and silly with folks walking around holding a container against their ass.
Irony here is that the patent service was started to get inventors to share their ideas and teach the world about the idea or invention. This was to promote technology advancement. In exchange for sharing and teaching this new idea or concept, the patent would offer the inventor some protection so that he may profit.So, basically, a patent is worthless to the average home inventor, unless has a $100k or so to through away. I mean if you do manage to get a patent, and it gets violates, it'll cost plenty to defend in court, receive a judgment, fight appeals, and actually get a check for damages. It would be tough to fight a manufacturing company that has a lot of experience in copying other peoples work, which seems to be what is taught at the Universities these days (HELP! My project is due Friday, need schematic, and lab report. Thanks...). A legal battle can take years, how many people could afford to ride it out? I've always figured patents were for people already rich, and attorneys (who profit more than their clients).
the procedure is much simpler than you assume. The gas container basically consists of a plastic pipe with a check valve.
The pipe is attached to a balloon which is inflated more with every fart.
When the pressure of a new fart is weaker than the pressure inside the balloon the "gas provider" shows up at my lab and gets pressure (and pain)relief.
However the balloon is big enough to store up to one dozen of strong gas charges.
The conversion from gas to liquid is no problem in Thailand. Even factories with high and strongly smoking gas exhausts don't use any filtering. The have used filters for a while and found they clogg up too quickly, so omitting the filters the gases can pass freely.
The smoke travels to Cambodia and Vietnam anyway.
Thais eat about everything which is digestable. E.g. frogs and crabs are eaten in toto. If a snake isn't careful enough it will end in a farmer's frying pan (this time skinned).My next question is, what are the citizens of Thailand eating that has them turning into perpetual sources of methane? Interesting on how humans can now be considered a renewable energy source!
