Here is a link to some info on a digester in Colombia, most of the gas is used for heat but at the bottom there is a small picture of a large storage bag and two diesel engines, a 100 HP Perkins and a 125 HP Blackstone that are used to burn up extra gas.  Wish there were some better pics of that setup.

And just some more links to digesters.  In some places people are less concerned with gas leaks and explosions then your average American building inspector.  ;)

 Extensive information is available from the wastewater treatment industry.  Try a search for " Water Pollution Control Federation " or " Water Environment Federation ".  These people deal in digesters of all kinds, sizes and types.
