Turn your waste into clean energy...

homebiogas

Overview

The world is shifting to lower greenhouse gas emissions and more than ever we hear about the importance of reducing our carbon footprint. We know that our everyday individual choices can directly contribute to achieving this global goal. Have you ever considered that your own waste can be part of this solution?

In line with our commitment to work with green companies, we are proud to be the official HomeBiogas reseller in New Zealand.

What is biogas or HomeBiogas?

Biogas is gas produced from the decomposition of organic matter by bacteria in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic digestion). Biogas is typically composed of 60% methane and creates a blue flame when burned, just like LPG or natural gas.

HomeBiogas is a system that converts your organic waste into biogas cooking fuel for your home and fertilizer for your garden.

How does this work?

The right climate (average day/night temperatures above 15°C) so HomeBiogas can work optimally.
Second, you need a space with good solar access to put the HomeBiogas. The size of the system is 2.1m x 1.2m and it should be placed outdoors in an easy-to-access area within 20 metres of where you intend to cook.
The last requirement is easy! You need a regular source of organic waste to feed HomeBiogas. You can use your leftover food scraps from the kitchen, or animal manure. If you connect the HomeBiogas toilet, you can even add your human waste.
How do I install, assemble and activate my system?

Installation:

You don’t need an expert or technician to install HomeBiogas, you can do it by yourself! Installation is easy with a step-by-step assembly manual and takes only about an hour with two people.

Activation:

After you assemble, it’s time to activate your system! Activation is the way you get bacteria into the water container so that it can start producing biogas. Activation is only done once in order to get the system activated with hungry bacteria.

The best way to activate HomeBiogas with bacteria is to feed the system with 100 litres of animal manure. Put it in and wait 3-4 weeks, so a healthy bacteria colony grows. After that, you can start using the biogas for cooking and feeding the system with food scraps if you would like.

Why does this solution work?

With this innovative, easy-to-install backyard bio-system you can turn your waste into clean renewable energy and live a self-sustainable life with minimal effort by recycling your food scraps into free clean cooking gas and rich fertilizer for your garden.

HomeBiogas can help you live a more sustainable life and equip you to fight climate change from your own backyard.
