Overview
Following the success of HomeBiogas 1.0, we have developed a new biogas appliance that will enable families around the world to cook on renewable energy. The HomeBiogas 2.0 is the most efficient, affordable and rewarding way to transform food waste and animal manure into energy in your own backyard!

 

Got 30 seconds? Here’s how the HomeBiogas 2.0 appliance can benefit you:

New to Biogas? Great! Learning how to make your own renewable energy from food waste is a fascinating and truly rewarding journey. We designed HomeBiogas 2.0 to be super simple and easy to use.  Just toss in your organic waste, and the bacteria will do the rest. Here are the basics of how it works:

 

Leftover food or food scraps may not be suitable for eating, but they still have calories that can be used to create energy. So don’t throw them out! Put food waste or animal manure into the appliance. The bacteria in the digester will break down the organic matter and convert it into biogas and fertilizer. The gas bag holds 700 liters of biogas at all times, ready for all your cooking needs. It is a 100% off-the-grid and natural process, similar to what happens in your own stomach.

WATCH: The fascinating process in 10 seconds!

 

 

 

 

 

COOKING WITH YOUR FOOD WASTE

Feed your food waste to HomeBiogas 2.0 and get up to 3 hours of cooking gas daily. It looks, smells, and burns just like any traditional gas would, the only difference is that this gas is made from recycling in your own backyard!

 

HIGH-QUALITY LIQUID FERTILIZER

The other outcome is all high-quality liquid fertilizer. No mess or work needed. The fertilizer flows from the user-friendly pouring sleeve straight into your fertilizer can. You will be proud to nourish your plants and food garden with a natural product, free from harmful chemicals and additives!

 

TEACH THE YOUNG GENERATION TO RECYCLE

HomeBiogas 2.0 enables households to embrace recycling and teach sustainable practices to the young generation. Education and leading by example are the most effective ways of creating new and positive habits. Imagine children growing up knowing that food scraps are not waste, they are valuable!

 

Choose a location in your backyard for HomeBiogas 2.0. It can be up to 20 meters from the kitchen. Then assemble it by connecting a few parts and filling up the digester with water. Assembly is super easy and should only take an hour! After assembly, activate the appliance the old-fashioned way, using animal manure, or using a bacteria kit. Activation only needs to be done one time, and once activation is done, you will be able to feed HomeBiogas 2.0 with your food scraps and produce free, renewable energy on a daily basis!

 

 

 

Composting is certainly a good step in the right direction, but with HomeBiogas, you can get more out of your waste. Unsure about why HomeBiogas is the future of waste composting? Let us show you:

HomeBiogas 2.0 is a powerful tool that can help mitigate climate change! It is an off-the-grid appliance, meaning that it does not depend on the use of any non-renewable power source. There are several ways in which HomeBiogas 2.0 reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

DIVERTS WASTE FROM LANDFILLS

Local waste management with HomeBiogas 2.0 diverts food scraps from becoming landfill waste. When food goes to the landfill, the nutrients in the food never return to the soil. Rather, the wasted food rots and produces methane gas which is released into the atmosphere and contributes to global warming. When you use HomeBiogas 2.0 you will be recycling your food scraps in your own backyard and recycling the methane your food produces.

 

REDUCES DEPENDENCE ON FOSSIL FUELS

When you choose to cook on biogas that was made from your food waste, you are reducing the demand for fossil fuels, which are non-renewable resources. Mining, processing and transporting fossil fuels take a lot of energy and resources, which is harmful to the environment and is a leading contributor to climate change.

 

SLOWS DOWN DEFORESTATION

Nearly 3 billion people around the world burn wood for daily cooking and heating. Burning wood releases emissions that are contributors to global climate change: carbon dioxide, methane and black carbon. Wood harvesting also contributes to loss of biodiversity and forest degradation. The use of biogas slows down this detrimental deforestation and gives an alternative to cooking on wood or charcoal.

 

 

 

 

HomeBiogas 2.0 is our second model, the first one, HomeBiogas 1.0, was a huge success! Since its retail sales began in 2016, HomeBiogas 1.0 is used in 76 countries worldwide! Although our customers come from diverse cultures, they share similar goals of wanting to reduce food waste and generate renewable energy.

 

HomeBiogas is a socially oriented company that cares about spreading biogas technology to all. During the campaign, you can get involved too! We’ve partnered with local organizations in Puerto Rico and in Kenya so that we can provide clean energy to the families who need it. Your donation will go straight to the purchase of a HomeBiogas 2.0 appliance for either of these causes. In return, we’ll match your donation through funding shipment of the system, leading local training, and providing continued maintenance. You’ll receive periodic updates about the impact the HomeBiogas 2.0 appliance is making. You can select the $50 Donation Pledge, or to donate more click here, and make a pledge without a reward.

The Bio Toilet connects to the existing HomeBiogas 2.0 appliance to create cooking gas and fertilizer from human waste. The Bio Toilet is a low flush toilet (uses only 1.2 liters of water per flush), that does not require running water and can utilize grey water. The Bio Toilet is perfect for those wishing to live off-the-grid, and is a solution for underserved communities that do not have access to latrines. Just like HomeBiogas 2.0, the toilet will arrive in a small box, and has a simple do-it-yourself assembly. Multiple toilets have already been put into use, being tested both at the HomeBiogas headquarters and in the field. In 2018 it will be available as an accessory to HomeBiogas 2.0. Contact info@homebiogas.com to get more information.

We are 16 environmental enthusiasts who share core values and dream of make a meaningful change for the planet. We are passionate that backyard biogas production is the way of the future and an answer to so many global issues. In the years to come, we will continue educating and pushing for our vision to enable biogas for all!  Thank you for supporting us and helping our dream become a reality!

 

The Creation Process

In January 2017, we set out to improve the HomeBiogas appliance. We took all the feedback we got from existing customers using HomeBiogas 1.0 and worked to sharpen features and improve user experience. It was also very important for us to lower the production cost, so that we could get biogas technology to the people who need it the very most- those who still don’t have a readily available, safe or affordable cooking source. We married the science of biodigestion with a new and improved design, and in May 2017, we arrived at HomeBiogas 2.0. Our manufacturing partners are ready to go. All we need is your support so we can deliver this renewable energy generator to your door!

 

See HomeBiogas 2.0 in Action

HomeBiogas 2.0 has been well tested, as you can see in our Kickstarter Live recording. We are now in the process of working with suppliers to manufacture the components of the appliance. Once we recieve all the components, we will be able to jump-start the production line and deliver straight to your door!
