You can feed your HomeBiogas system up to 12 liters of food waste or up to 40 liters of animal waste daily. An equal amount of water should be added with the waste when you put it into the inlet of HomeBiogas.

Do Put Kitchen Waste

The appliance thrives on all types of food leftovers; meat, dairy, vegetables, fats and bones are all fine to put in. Avoid feeding large quantities of citrus fruit (orange, grapefruit, lemon) skin since it contains anti-bacterial oil, which could reduce the effectiveness of the digestion.

Do Put Animal Manure 

You can feed the appliance with animal manure, especially that of any animal that chews its cud (i.e. cows, deer, camels, buffalo, goats and sheep). The animal manure should be free of stones, straw, and earth, which will not break down in the digester. You may also add dog or cat waste (without sand). We recommend limiting chicken droppings, since they contain a high level of ammonia and will alter the balance of the digester fluid. 

Do Put Human Waste

Those who choose to put human waste into HomeBiogas should use the 2.0 model in conjunction with the Bio Toilet. Human waste will break down and be turned into biogas just as animal manure would. In 2018, the Bio Toilet will be available as an accessory to HomeBiogas 2.0. Contact to get more information

Do Not Put Leaves, Grass and Wood Shavings

You cannot feed the appliance with leaves, grass or wood shavings. They will not break down and will only clog the digester and fertilizer outlet.
