Write at least 150 words.
A probable method of household power generation in future is portrayed in the given diagram.
It is clear that the main components of the system would include two large tanks: one for the compost, and the other for storing methane gas, a compressor, a combustion engine, a generator and a battery for energy storage.
The first stage involves the deposition of domestic wastes (leaves, food scraps, etc.) along with water in a large steel tank, which is about six feet high and 12 feet long. As the tank would fill to almost 75%, fermentation is set to initiate and methane is projected to escape through the exhaust pipes, which would be then stored in a large storage tank.
Later, this gas is set to be compressed in a gas compressor, and then channeled to fuel the combustion engine, which would in turn produce mechanical energy. This energy is to be converted into electrical energy by the generator, which would be ultimately stored in the battery. As per the household requirement, the energy stored can be utilized.
