Manure (and food scraps) is flushed directly into the HomeBiogas solar biodigester, where it is broken down by bacteria and transformed into odorless methane gas for household use, in a completely sealed ecosystem.
For the millions of people around the world lacking sewage lines or even basic lavatories, the new HomeBiogas Bio-Toilet could provide an answer for waste disposal and energy production all at once.
Flushed with a manual pump using only 1.2 liters of water, the Bio-Toilet does not need to be connected to a water or sewage line and can use graywater.
The waste is flushed directly into the HomeBiogas solar biodigester, where it is broken down by bacteria and transformed into biogas for household needs along with other waste such as food scraps and animal manure. Continue Reading »
