HomeBiogas was founded in 2012 with the mission of reducing organic waste, transitioning to renewable energy, and improving the health and living conditions for the millions of families that are still cooking on charcoal and wood. Over the last year, distributors and aid organizations alike have joined in HomeBiogas’ efforts to educate about the many benefits of biogas technology. Together we are proud to have deployed thousands of biogas systems to over 90 countries worldwide, enabling people to transform their lives while simultaneously helping the environment.
The HomeBiogas Mission
LIFE ON LAND
The HomeBiogas cuts out the need to collect firewood for cooking, thus preventing deforestation, stops the accumulation of organic waste in landfills, and promotes sustainable soil quality with the organic bio-slurry.
The HomeBiogas helps people across the socioeconomic spectrum achieve energy independence. The Bio-Toilet specifically benefits women and children who need a safe and private space to relieve themselves.
There is an increasing need to combat global warming with efficient waste management and renewable energy solutions. The HomeBiogas addresses both issues, reducing 6 tons of carbon emissions a year.
AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY
Charcoal is the predominant fuel in Africa; however, it is costly. The HomeBiogas allows families to spend less money on charcoal and generate free, clean-burning cooking gas instead.
CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION
1 billion people worldwide defecate in the open. The Bio-Toilet reduces open defecation so human pathogens don’t contaminate water bodies and spread dangerous, lethal diseases.
INDUSTRY, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE
With the migration from villages to urban environments on the rise, solutions for sanitation and organic waste management are needed. The HomeBiogas provides a national infrastructure on a home level.
Our Impact By 2022
Based on the many ways in which using the HomeBiogas helps the environment, our projected impact is more than three million tons of CO2 emissions reduced by 2022
