The 5 Steps to solve your home digester problem can be as simple as follows:
1. Investigate the cause of the problem such as blocked pipework, inefficient waste feed preparation and/or mixing.
2. Assuming that you have sufficient feed materials of a suitable quality for biogas production and good digestion, see if the problem can be solved by modifying your biogas digestion plant/ home digester, cleaning it out, refilling it with some suitable feed material and a digester organism seed material (for example) sewage works digester sludge) and starting again.
3. If that will be too expensive, or is something you have already tried and failed, you should start again and buy a new biodigester from one of the new home biogas digester plant manufacturers. These have been emerging throughout 2015. Many people have not yet seen them, but they are a remarkable new development and should make your project a success.

This Home-Friendly Biodigester Lets You Turn Food Scraps Into Usable Cooking Fuel
Looking to leave a better world for our progeny than the one we inherited? It’s a tall order, but it can start with environmental efficiency in the form of an ingenious new system called HomeBiogas. While composting has long been considered an environmentally friendly move in and of itself, you can now take things a step further, using HomeBiogas to convert kitchen waste into usable cooking gas and liquid fertilizer. It’s the ultimate in self-sustained sustainability, making it easier than ever for families in even the most urban of environments to go green.
A startup company from Israel has invented a biogas device that converts organic waste products into sufficient gas for cooking. Also, in every two to four hours of cooking using organic waste materials, it can produce from five to eight liters of liquid fertilizers in a single day.
The Israeli startup company’s invention proclaimed a new trend on local waste recovery for both on-grid homes as well as off-grid facilities. Their invention is capable of taking organic waste products up to six liters to include meat and dairy, which is not recommended for home decomposition. It can also convert energy from animal manure of up to 15 liters per day, which provides cooking gas for several hours a day, but it also works with smaller quantities. According to the makers, by adding just 1kg of organic waste, the user will get about 200 liters of cooking gas, sufficient to cook on high flame for about an hour.
What is more, the unit also produces high quality fertilizer that can go back into the vegetable garden. At maximum capacity, the user can get about 8 liters of liquid fertilizer per day, only from materials that would have otherwise been disposed of.
This biodigester promises to turn your food scraps into cooking gas
All those food scraps from tonight’s dinner can now go towards cooking tomorrow’s meal, thanks to a new concept called HomeBiogas. The system works well enough to produce enough cooking gas for up to three meals a day, while also producing clean and natural liquid fertilizer for use in the garden.
This environmentalist’s dream will be available soon thanks to a successful Indiegogo campaign that reached its $100,000 funding goal in less than 24 hours. The Israeli-based startup HomeBiogas expects the system to ship in May 2016.
HomeBiogas looks like a greenhouse and includes several components to process food waste: A digester tank, powered by a solar cover that captures heat from the sun, processes the waste and separates the gas from the decomposing waste. Filters and chlorinators process the gas and sludge produced. A spigot on the other side of the digester tank allows the user to obtain liquid fertilizer once the process is complete.
Up to six quarts of food waste can be processed per day, producing up to three hours of cooking gas, HomeBiogas says. The system is designed to work in climates where the average daily temperature is around 64; the system is not designed to operate in cold or freezing temperatures.
Those who pledge to support the Indiegogo campaign can get the system as low as $945. The final retail price is expected to be $1500.
Why this matters: Clean energy is a hot market, but some types—including liquefied petroleum gas—don’t come from renewable sources. If the HomeBiogas works as advertised, it will produce energy that’s both clean and renewable, with the side benefit of reducing the amount of waste that ends up in our landfills.
It’s not just about you
As with most environmentally friendly energy solutions, HomeBiogas is positioning its product as a way to eliminate your contribution to the stressors our daily lives put on our surrounding environment.
Producing your own gas through our own waste eliminates the need for use of energy sources that may produce that energy in much less environmentally friendly ways. The fertilizer it produces can be used in the garden to lessen the need to travel to market to purchase it, which adds pollution through car exhaust, and the truck exhaust it took to get there in the first place.
