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 Africa.

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).

Biobox - BiogasPro - Turn waste into biogas for cooking, lighting or generating electricity - how it works

Cattle dung contains suitable bacteria, and a small amount of cattle dung is often used as the ‘starter’ for a biogas plant, even when it is not the main feedstock. Using biogas can save the labour of gathering and using wood for cooking, minimise harmful smoke in homes, and cut deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions.

The Biobox range of products adheres to the highest industry standards.


Biorock® electricity-free domestic sewage treatment plant

The treated effluent from this system exceeds most water-discharge standards and surpasses the highest regulations and norms, including the criteria for several prestigious certifications. The Biorock® package sewage treatment system was developed to purify domestic sewage (or waste water) which operates in the absence of a centralised sewage system.
