    I read this on Wikipedia and now I need to translate this to English:
    "Un digestor de desechos orgánicos o BIODIGESTOR es, en su forma más simple, un contenedor cerrado, hermético e impermeable (llamado reactor), dentro del cual se deposita el material orgánico a fermentar (excrementos de animales y humanos, desechos vegetales-no se incluyen cítricos ya que acidifican-, etcétera)".

    May I translate "Biodisgestor" as BOidigestor?

    Thank you!

    Hi Natalia;

    I think the correct is "biogester"

    bio= life
    digester = one that digests or makes a digest.

    Biodigester = a vessel for digesting organic materials. (My dad had one on his farm.)
