HomeBiogas Announces Achievement While Attending COP27, Focusing on Climate Change Solutions for Africa
HomeBiogas will provide biogas systems for the treatment of organic waste to farmers in Rwanda, after winning a recent United Nations tender.
HomeBiogas develops and markets biogas systems for the on-site treatment of organic waste and its transformation into renewable energy for cooking or heating. The systems will process organic waste from farmers in communities in eastern Rwanda and will include installation and training of residents in the use of the systems.
One of the main sources of methane gas emissions is the disposal of organic waste in landfills. HomeBiogas’ solution has significant environmental value due to its ability to reduce methane gas emissions. The HomeBiogas system treats organic waste on-site and thereby significantly reduces methane emissions, resulting in the reduction of more than six tonnes of carbon dioxide per year for each system. In addition, the innovative technology developed by HomeBiogas provides a complete solution for the on-site treatment of organic waste and thus generates significant savings for its customers in the growing costs of waste removal, transport and landfill.
The signing of the agreement with the United Nations follows the company’s selection as an official United Nations supplier, which allows the company to access United Nations tenders for the supply of waste treatment systems in other UN projects around the world. HomeBiogas announces its third victory last year in a UN tender after winning two UN tenders (Zimbabwe and Malawi) for the supply of biogas systems for the treatment of organic waste in the camps refugees in Africa. The reasons for the UN’s choice of the Israeli technology lie, among other things, in the fact that these systems treat waste in an environmentally friendly way, and transform it into energy for local use. In addition, the systems come in a convenient package for storage and transport, are simple to install, durable for a period of fifteen years and easy to use. These systems are sold in 107 countries around the world.
By turning agricultural waste into clean cooking gas and organic fertilizer, these systems will improve people’s lives; farmers will become more resilient with their own organic fertilizer and families will benefit from their own sustainable energy source. The innovative technology developed by HomeBiogas provides farmers with effective and efficient waste recovery solutions that improve crop yields and income opportunities.
With a regenerative approach to agriculture and farming, and as the prices of chemical fertilizers continue to rise, the HomeBiogas stand-alone solution creates a versatile solution biofertilizer which complements chemical fertilizers, stimulates the soil, strengthens the plant and allows farmers to save on yields.
HomeBiogas has already been implemented on thousands of farms around the world which now benefit from tens of thousands of liters of organic fertilizer as well as a constant flow of cooking gas.
Oshik Efrati, Founder and CEO of HomeBiogas“We are grateful that the UN has selected our technology for the third time this year. Our first two projects with the UN in refugee camps in Malawi and Zimbabwe have been successfully implemented and now winning this tender will also bring our technology to hundreds of families in Rwanda. We view this win as an important business development and believe it will lay the groundwork for additional opportunities. We are seeing a growing global demand for innovation in climate technologies and waste management, and this is noticeable at COP27, where we are currently showcasing our solutions.
