What if, instead of throwing your organic waste so that it ends up in a landfill and emits methane gas into the atmosphere, you could stop contributing to global warming and take advantage of your garbage in your own home ? This is what HomeBiogas 2.0 offers , an innovation that, in a simple way, allows you to convert your food scraps into biogas for cooking for three hours a day, as well as a natural fertilizer for your plants or your home garden.
Home biogas step by step.
How? You may be wondering. And the truth is that quite simply, since this system replicates the processes that occur in the stomach. Therefore, when food scraps or animal manure are introduced into this “machine”, the bacteria it contains naturally break down the organic matter and convert it into biogas and fertilizer.
All this process is executed without the need to connect to the network. This circumstance expands the advantages for the environment of using HomeBiogas which, in addition to not consuming energy, allows us to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, in this case through biogas. In addition, in those places where wood continues to burn for both cooking and heating, this innovation could help curb deforestation.
But, apart from the above, this innovation for the self-management of organic waste allows each home to reduce greenhouse gas emissions due to inefficient management of these remains. “HomeBiogas 2.0 is a powerful tool that can contribute to mitigating climate change”, defend its promoters -the company HomeBiogas- in a campaign launched on KickStarter to raise funds with which to produce the second version of their invention.
With it, the possibility is opened that any family with a certain space to locate this system (always, at a maximum distance of 20 meters from the kitchen), can transform the leftovers of their food or animal manure into clean energy for cooking. for 3 hours a day. Specifically, the equipment has a capacity for 700 liters of biogas, which is stored until it is used.
In parallel, this technology, which takes about an hour to install, also provides liquid fertilizer free of chemicals and additives, to use it to nourish plants or any home crop with the guarantee that it is a completely natural product.
After HomeBiogas 1.0 reached homes in up to 76 countries, the promoters of this improved model plan to launch it on the market in 2018. The cost of the system, which can save up to 300 dollars per year per family, will be 790 dollars. The price, the promoters underline, has become much cheaper compared to the first edition so that “those who need it most” , those with lower incomes, can also have clean energy thanks to the good management of their waste.
