HomeBiogas Will Turn Farm Waste Into Renewable Energy in Rwanda
HomeBiogas will be supplying biogas systems for the treatment of organic waste for farmers in Rwanda, after winning a recent UN tender. The systems will be treating the organic waste of farmers in communities in eastern Rwanda and will include installation and training of the locals in the use of the systems. Tel Aviv, November 9, 2022 – HomeBiogas will be supplying biogas systems for the treatment of organic waste for farmers in Rwanda, after winning a recent UN tender. HomeBiogas announces this achievement while participating in COP27, focusing on climate change solutions for Africa.
Families will become more resilient by creating their own cooking gas and farmers will become more independent with their own-grown organic fertilizer.
Transforming waste into growth with the Bio-Fertilizer
One of the main sources of methane gas emissions is the disposal of organic waste in landfills. HomeBiogas’ solution has a significant environmental value due to its ability to reduce methane gas emissions. HomeBiogas’ system treats organic waste on-site and thus significantly reduces methane gas emissions, and results in the reduction of over six tons of carbon dioxide per year for each system. In addition, the innovative technology developed by HomeBiogas provides the farmers with efficient and effective waste-to-resource solutions that improve crop outputs and revenue opportunities.
With a regenerative approach to agriculture and farming, and as the prices of chemical fertilizers are on the rise, the HomeBiogas self-sustaining solution creates a multipurpose biofertilizer that supplements chemical fertilizers, stimulates the soil, strengthens the plant, and allows farmer
s to save on outputs.
HomeBiogas has already been implemented in thousands of farms across the world that are now enjoying tens of thousands of litters of organic fertilizer as well as a steady 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 were successfully implemented and now winning this tender will also bring our technology to hundreds of families in Rwanda. We see this win as an important business development and we believe it will lay the foundation for additional opportunities. We are witnessing a growing global demand for climate tech and waste management innovation, and this is noticeable at COP27, where we’re currently showcasing our solutions.
UN Projects: Making Waste Matter in Africa
The signing of the agreement with the United Nations followed the selection of the company as an official supplier of the United Nations, which allows the company access to United Nations tenders for the supply of waste treatment systems in other United Nations projects around the world. HomeBiogas reports its third win in the last year in a UN tender after previously winning two UN tenders (Zimbabwe and Malawi) for the supply of biogas systems for the treatment of organic waste in refugee camps in Africa. The reasons for the UN’s choice of Israeli technology lie, among others, in the fact that these systems treat waste in an ecological way, and turn it into energy for local use. In addition, the systems come in a convenient package for storage and transportation, are simple to install, durable for a period of fifteen years, and are easy to use.
