THE BIOGAS Plant
The low cost portable biogas plant we developed uses organic waste (cow dung, kitchen waste) to produce clean cooking energy (biogas) to the rural areas of developing countries.
The biogas plant is able to meet the cooking fuel requirement of a single family in rural areas, and also produces an organic fertilizer that can be sold to farmers.
Portable & easy to set up
The digester with all its components can be packed in a single package and be transported to any remote areas. A user can unpack the components and set up the biogas plant very easily without the help of any external expert.
Light package + fast installation
Our technologie enable to maintain the weight of the biogas plant to 10 kg; that’s equivalent to the concrete base of a garden umbrella and reduce the installation time to less than 2 hours.
How it looks (for now)
We're still improving our prototype to make it as easy, efficient and pretty as possible.
The plant is also equipped with a safety fence and a protective frame to avoid external damages.

We're closing working with the users to make it as easy as possible for them to set up. Play the video to learn more.
How it works?
The organic waste is inputted through the inlet pipe and it’s digested in the digester. The digester is an anaerobic chamber where anaerobic bacteria grows with in the organic wastes. The bacteria generates biogas which is transported to the gas reservoir located about the digester. The reservoir can store up to 1.5 m3 gas at very low pressure (15-20 mbar). Finally, the gas travels from the biogas plant to the burner through the gas outlet pipe.
The remaining waste after digestion is then taken out via the slurry outline pipe and can be used as a fertilizer.
