Biogas is a gas produced from the decomposition of organic matter by bacteria in the absence of oxygen (anaerobic digestion). Biogas is smokeless, flammable gas typically composed of 60% methane and creates a blue flame when burned, just like LPG or natural gas, and is 20% lighter than air. Home Biogas is a system that converts your organic waste into cooking gas for your home and liquid fertilizer for your garden.
The right climate (average day/night temperatures above 20°C/68°F) so Home Biogas can work optimally. A space to put the Home Biogas. The size of the system is 2.10m x 1.2m (6.8ft x 3.7ft) and it should be placed outdoors in an easy-to-access area within 20 meters / 65 feet of where you intend to cook. The last requirement is easy! You need a regular source of organic waste to feed Home Biogas. You can use your leftover food scraps from the kitchen, or if you have a small farm or homestead, you can use animal manure.
In addition to creating biogas cooking fuel, Home Biogas creates a bio-slurry fertilizer full of macro and micro nutrients which are in the right form for rapid absorption by plants. It can be replace putting manure or store-bought fertilizer on your plants. The ferilizer can increase growth and your plants' resilience to diseases. The liquid bio-slurry fertilizer is automatically ejected from Home Biogas through the fertilizer outlet as you add more organic waste and water into the system each day. The quantity of fertilizer produced by the system is equal to the quantity of feeding. If you feed it the maximum quantity recommended which is 12 liters per day, you should receive 12 liters per day of fertilizer. Consistent quality in the fertilizer comes from constantly feeding the system a diverse mix of organic waste. If you have fed humanure to the system, you should use an ecological design process to mange the waste and not put it directly on edible plants. We call the fertilizer organic because it comes from organic matter. "Organic waste" and "organic products" are two different things. "Organic products" have been third-party certified because they meet certain standards. "Organic waste" simply refers to organic matter that has come from a recently living organism (including plants). In a way, if your kitchen waste is only organic, it can be called "organic waste".
The bio-toilet is an off-grid solution that can be integrated with the Home Biogas system. The Bio-Toilet connects directly to the biodigester, eliminating any hassle or mess. WIth 1.2 literse per flush, you will save water, get even more fertilizer, and help eliminate environmental pollution from human waste by using an ecological method for breaking it down. The bio-toilet kit comes with all the pipes that you need to connect the toilet to the Home Biogas system, as well as detailed instructions for assembly and attachment.
