An anaerobic digester

(57)    Abstract

An anaerobic digester 20 comprises a vessel 22 which defines a lower reactor chamber 24 in which organic waste material can be digested and an upper expansion chamber 26 which is disposed adjacent to and above the reactor chamber 24. The vessel includes a waste -loading chute 28 which extends into the reactor chamber 24 for introducing organic waste matter into the chamber 24. The vessel 20 has a base 36, a cylindrical side wall 38, a dome-shaped upper wall 40 and a dome -shaped internal dividing wall 42 which separates the reactor chamber 24 from the expansion chamber 26. The vessel 22 includes a biogas discharge conduit 44 which is centrally disposed within the vessel and which extends between central openings in the upper wall and the dividing wall. The vessel includes an overflow conduit 50 which extends downwardly from the dividing wall and which provides for an overflow of waste material from the reactor chamber into the expansion chamber
