  • What is biogas?

    (Wikipedia) Biogas typically refers to a mixture of different gases produced by the breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Biogas can be produced from raw materials such as agricultural waste, manure, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or food waste. Biogas is a renewable energy source and in many cases exerts a very small carbon footprint. Biogas can be produced by anaerobic digestion with anaerobic organisms, which digest material inside a closed system, or fermentation of biodegradable materials.[1] Biogas is primarily methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2) and may have small amounts of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), moisture and siloxanes.

    What is wood gas?

    (Wikipedia) Wood gas is a syngas fuel which can be used as a fuel for furnaces, stoves and vehicles in place of gasoline, diesel or other fuels. During the production process biomass or other carbon-containing materials are gasified within the oxygen-limited environment of a wood gas generator to produce hydrogen and carbon monoxide.

    What is landfill gas?

    (Wikipedia) Landfill gas is a complex mix of different gases created by the action of microorganisms within a landfill. Landfill gas is approximately forty to sixty percent methane, with the remainder being mostly carbon dioxide. Trace amounts of other volatile organic compounds comprise the remainder (<1%). These trace gases include a large array of species, mainly simple hydrocarbons.

    What is sewage gas?

    (Wikipedia) Sewer gas is a complex mixture of toxic and nontoxic gases produced and collected in sewage systems by the decomposition of organic household or industrial wastes, typical components of sewage.
    Sewer gases may include hydrogen sulfide, ammonia, methane, esters, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides. Improper disposal of petroleum products such as gasoline and mineral spirits contribute to sewer gas hazards. Sewer gases are of concern due to their odor, health effects, and potential for creating fire or explosions.

    Combined
    Heat and
    Power (CHP)


    CHP units have the benefit that the gas can be stored to provide energy efficiently for daily peaks and base demands. CHP systems can be designed for ON- & OFF grid connections.


    Little
    green monster


    The Little Green Monster is a domestic bio-digester that turns domestic organic waste into energy (patented ZA 2012/08126). With the Little Green Monster you can turn any soft household organic waste into energy for cooking, heating or lighting. Ever wondered what to do with your dog's droppings, food-waste or grass clippings? Turn it into energy and offset it from your Eskom bill.

    We can create a more sustainable, cleaner and safer world by making wiser energy choices
