Energy from waste!
The AGAMA BiogasPro is a 'one stop shop' that enables you to extend your existing sustainable
living activities and integrate your current waste management systems - composting, recycling, wastewater
treatment and re-use - and produce renewable energy on-site.
You can achieve this with the BiogasPro, a living "machine" that has a range of beneficial bacteria as its
"engine". These bacteria consume the biodegradable materials – biowastes - they are fed. The results are magic
- free fuel and fantastic fertiliser!
The BiogasPro is like a sealed septic tank, to which various biowastes can be added providing an integrated
solid and liquid waste processing facility. Now you can think of waste as a useful resource that provides
energy, valuable nutrients and pre-treated water.
The BiogasPro has been approved for installation by various Municipalities across South
The free fuel comes in the form of biogas, a natural gas consisting primarily of methane, which is stored in
the top of the BiogasPro and piped directly to the gas cooker. The experience of cooking on biogas is
identical to cooking on liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). However, biogas cannot be connected up directly to LPG
appliances. It is used in purpose-made biogas or specially modified natural gas appliances. Biogas can also be 'cleaned' and used for
electricity generation, but this is usually only worth doing in larger applications.
What are the benefits?
- Convenient, integrated waste management
- Renewable source of fuel
- Avoided waste to landfill
- Free fertiliser
- Water re-use
- Reduced carbon footprint
The BiogasPro has been tested by an accredited testing authority and verified by the
South African Pipeline Gas Association (SAPGA).
