It’s never been easier to generate your own power at home. Israeli startup, HomeBiogas, has created a family-sized biogas system that converts any organic waste into enough clean cooking gas for 3 meals and 10 liters of clean natural liquid fertilizer every day.
All organic waste, including meat, dairy and animal manure can be used in the system. What this means is that you’ll be able to cook dinner with the gas produced from lunch’s leftovers.
This unit is really handy as you can assemble it anywhere. Oshik Efrati, CEO of HomeBiogas says: “Our goal at HomeBiogas is to make this system available to everyone, whether you live in a rural area or are an urbanite with a modern kitchen.”
Our system eliminates waste, makes clean gas, and puts an end to breathing in cooking smoke. If everyone owned a HomeBiogas unit, our world would be much cleaner, safer, and greener.”
Measuring only measures 123cm x 165cm x 100cm and weighing just under 40 kg, the system requires relatively little space in your garden. HomeBiogas looks like a greenhouse and contains all of the necessary components to process organic food waste. A digester tank, powered by a solar cover that captures heat from the sun, processes the waste and separates the gas from the decomposing waste. Filters and chlorinators process the gas and sludge produced.
Within the system is a digester tank, powered by a solar cover that captures heat from the sun, processes the waste and separates the gas from the decomposing waste. A series of filters and chlorinators process the gas and sludge produced.
A tap built into the other side of the digester tank allows the user to obtain liquid fertilizer once the process is complete.
According to the makers, the unit can convert just one kilogram of food waste into about 200 liters (7 cubic feet) of gas, more than enough to fuel an hour’s worth of cooking.
What is more, the unit also produces high quality fertilizer that can go back into the vegetable garden. At maximum capacity, the user can get about 8 liters of liquid fertilizer per day, only from materials that would have otherwise been disposed of.
If the HomeBiogas works as advertised, it will produce energy that’s both clean and renewable, with the side benefit of reducing the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills.
Thanks to a successful Indiegogo campaign that reached its $100,000 funding goal in less than 24 hours, the Israeli-based startup HomeBiogas expects the system to ship in late 2016.
The HomeBiogas system is available on pre-order price of $995 and the retail price is expected to be around $1,500.
