NANO BIOGAS

Nano Biogas is a sister project to Playponics. It is funded through Sheffield Hallam University's Global Challenges Research Fund. The project aims to develop biogas plants that have detachable/portable components that are convenient to use.

We have experimented with a few prototypes; installed in different homes in Khanpur Garbi. One of the latest nano scale designs is inspired by 'Jugaad' and has helped reduce the participating family's cooking gas bill by 30%.
