Meth(ane) Production Apparatus

I had the opportunity to help with a fun little project related to a UGROW (Undergraduate Research Opportunities and Summer Workshop) grant for the Biology department. The student is researching the feasibility of speeding up the methane gas production cycle using targetted methanogens to convert food service waste into a renewable fuel source.

The design and documentation of the apparatus also served as my final project for the Solid Modelling class I was taking. Files are available in SolidWorks format, drop me a line. Since I'm doing the work in preparing the laboratories and designing many of the projects here at the school of engineering, I decided I might as well get the degree. It'll take a number of years, since I'm only taking a class at a time, or so, but I don't mind .
