Have we ever given a thought about how much money we shell out on LPG cylinders and other popular cooking apparatus, despite knowing that they are hardly beneficial in the long run? A large fraction of our income is wasted on buying kerosene oil, LPG gases, stoves, coal etc. It is time we realize that these practices are not only derogatory for our domestic economy, but are also harmful for the environment.

It’s time; we try something more eco-friendly that would utilize the kitchen waste products and other biomass as a source of renewal energy generation. Gasification is undoubtedly one such environmental friendly methods. The process of gasification involves chemical reaction of bio-degradable wastes and biomass products, with certain amount of oxygen and steam, without combustion, at a high temperature of more than 700 °C. The resultant gas, which is termed as Syngas (Synthesis Gas), can be used as an effective fuel for cooking and heating. The additional advantage of this procedure is that it avoids the production of two harmful ash elements — chloride and potassium.
Thereby, the bio degradable wastes, such as tea leaves, egg shells, vegetable peels, and residues of meat, which used to get dumped in your bins for no good, can actually make a huge contribution in your domestic economy. Pursue a healthier living with the installation of a Modular Home System that comes with a digester. This apparatus can also curtail, if not nullify, the usage of LPG cylinders. One modular home system can cater to a small or medium sized family, consisting of 3 to 25 members.

Similarly, large volumes of bio degradable wastes and biomass materials, generated in heavier volumes, in places like wet markets, marshlands and villages, can be used for generating energy and fuels for a larger population at a community level and impart better health, cleanliness and economic growth in the area.
