      Ordinary domestic size septic tanks probably produce a quantity of methane. Has anyone ever harnessed it for domestic use? Would appreciate any suggestions about where to find such information, or how to go about doing it.

      I know that sewage plants burn off the gas from the digesters. I’ve even seen them recover the gas for usage as a source for heat instead of natural gas.
      The problem is, the gas has a high moisture content and is very hard on piping and controls.
      You would most likely find the same problem with a septic tank.
      Mother Earth News used to carry articles about this type of self sufficency. I would start with them .
