In this 13 minute demonstration, we show how to setup an anaerobic biomass digester using lab glassware (i.e.. flasks, glass and plastic tubing, rubber stoppers), vegetable and fruit scraps, and wetlands mud.
You can view a shorter 4 minute video of the demonstration using a graduated cylinder here:
