The HomeBiogas Bio-toilet
The home biogas bio-toilet is remarkable for its simplicity. For the first time using a DIY system delivered to your doorstep globally, a huge number of people will be able to process their “humanure” (poo and wee). They’ll do it using a home biogas plant, and applying the anaerobic digestion process.
If you have a toilet to flush, consider yourself lucky. Lots of people on Earth don’t have one. That’s an environmental problem the United Nations has aimed to highlight every Nov. 19. The folks at HomeBioGas are using the day to launch a bio-toilet aimed to two of life’s necessities: Pooping and eating. “Do you create your own gas?” the startup asks.
If that sounds gross, consider this: 2.3 billion people on Earth have no access to basic toilet facilities, and 892 million practice open defecation. That’s a practice that’s increasing in sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania due to population growth, according to the World Health Organization. This is linked to the transmission of diseases like cholera, diarrhea, and to death.
HomeBioGas is launching a system to attack those statistics, taking the waste people generate every day (depending on your schedule) and using a biodigester to convert the stuff into cooking fuel.
Don’t worry, we’re not talking about briquettes. The unit turns waste into methane. Each unit comes with a specially adapted biogas stove, so you can cook on renewable energy at home. The company says a typical home stove top also can be converted to use the gas with a small nozzle adjustment.
The World Wildlife Fund notes that using methane for cooking means less of the greenhouse gas is released into the atmosphere. via www.forbes.com
For those who already have the HomeBiogas system, the Bio-Toilet accessory will allow you to treat your toilet waste too. It is 100% off-the-grid and will only use 1.2 liters of water from a standing source. via www.homebiogas.com
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. It can also use “grey water” (graywater in US), [such as kitchen sink water, and bath water.]
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.
While compost toilets can require manual emptying and can attract pests, the HomeBiogas system is completely sealed and there’s no need to have any direct contact or hand-remove waste. via www.israel21c.org
Our Bio-Toilet Video Script
The following is the transcription of the video:
The Bio-Toilet connects to the HomeBiogas system, which is an off-grid appliance that turns organic waste into renewable cooking gas.
The main appliance – the HomeBiogas system- takes waste such as food scraps and animal manure and using a biological process, turns that into biogas.
No chemicals and no toxins.
It uses a biological process that’s 100% a process that is constantly happening in nature all around us.
If you’re interested in more details, look up anaerobic digestion, which is the scientific name for the process that the HomeBiogas system uses.
The Bio-Toilet is an incredible use of sustainable technology.
This is a life-saver for refugee camps, where sanitation, and energy are scarce.
But, more “typical western families” should be adopting this type of technology as well.
We’re entering an era where our planet just cannot afford limitless toilet flushing, nor the old wasteful (extraction, use, and landfill) ways.
Our rivers will die if we keep discharging our human waste, and don’t begin to repair past damage.
This closed-loop system is exactly the kind of technology we need to adopt if we’re going to keep living on this planet.
What’s really great about the Bio-Toilet and the HomeBiogas system is that it makes sustainable living so easy.
“The potential for the Bio-Toilet is huge, particularly in rural and remote areas. The logistics and installation are so simple.”
