Compact Biogas Systems offer households energy freedom

This clean, efficient and safe system produces hot frame using only kitchen food waste. The compact design allows it be installed into almost any urban space and once it is installed there is little to no operating costs. In other words “Free Energy

ADVANTAGES

  • Small quantity of all kinds of decomposable waste foods can be used as raw material to produce gas
  • The system reduces the dependence on LPG, Kerosene, Electricity and Charcoal
  • The system can be scaled to meet the requirement
  • Relatively Low Investment and space required
  • Quick and easy installation and relocation
  • Produces an Organic Fertilizer as a By-product
  • Suitable for both urban and rural usage
  • 800 times more efficient than traditional dung based Biogas systems

The CBS can be installed in most urban households.  Essentially the system needs to be located with 10m of the kitchen, in a sunny location and requires only 1.5m square of space.

The CBS, which was invented in India by Dr. A. Karve, the founder of ARTI-India, has won numerous awards accross East Africa and international awards, including the Ashden Award for Sustainable Energy.

Charcoal Briquettes drying in the sun before packaging

Charcoal briquettes made from agricultural waste and other dry biomass offer an economical solution to the rising costs of cooking fuel in cities.  Briquettes are clean burning and cheaper than traditional wood charcoal.  They also provide an alternative to cutting precious forests for fuel.

ARTI has years of experience producing charcoal briquettes and training individuals and groups to produce charcoal briquettes and char powder.

ARTI provides technical support and trainings along with supplying equipment such as charcoal kilns and extruders required to begin char powder or briquette production.

For more information on trainings offered by ARTI visit the Trainings tab.
