This is part of a series of articles that looks at entrepreneurs hoping to get their ideas off the ground through crowdfunding. At the time of writing, each of these innovations is currently seeking funding.

As the interest in reducing waste and carbon use continuously increases, we have seen a number of innovations in areas such as wind and solar power for the home. An updated innovation now holds out the promise of allowing households to generate their own biogas. Biogas is made up of several gases, primarily methane and carbon dioxide, which are produced by the decomposition of organic matter in an environment absent of oxygen. Yair Teller, co-founder of HomeBiogas, first came across biogas being used in an off-grid community in India. Impressed, he teamed up with a friend to design and test several prototypes for a simpler biogas system. They eventually came up with an affordable, DIY biogas system designed for home use. The system converts organic waste into clean cooking gas and high-quality liquid fertilizer for the garden. First released in 2016, an updated version is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
