Tools/Supergas installation

Supergas installation

The first public presentation of the biogas project took place at Louisiana, Museum of Modern Art, Denmark. The presentation was thought as a tool it self by bringing as many aspects of the project to the public as possible. Including video documentation, writen statements, campaign paintings, posters etc. Variations of the Supergas Installation has been exhibited in numerous arts institutions since. Since 1996 SUPERFLEX has collaborated with European and African engineers to construct a simple biogas unit that can produce sufficient gas for the cooking and lightening needs for a family living in rural areas in the Global South. In August 1997, SUPERFLEX installed and tested the first Supergas biogas system running on organic materials, such as human and animal stools. The experiment was carried out at a small farm in central Tanzania, in cooperation with the African organisation SURUDE (Sustainable Rural Development). The biogas plant produces approx. 3-4 cubic metres of gas per day from the dung from 2-3 cattle – enough for a family of 8-10 members for cooking purposes and to run one gas lamp in the evening.
