We install medium and large scale concrete digesters for farmers/clients with large amounts of waste, or such with over 20 dairy cows on zero grazing, agro-processing industry and more.
During 2012, Cypro East Africa in collaboration with Polytanks Ltd designed and released to the market the Polybiogas series of digester.
The range of digesters under the POLYBIOGAS MODEL are designed to be used with a variety of bio-degradable materials such as food waste, livestock dung, poultry droppings, waste from the processing of agricultural products, e.g. coffee pulp, molasses, and fruit pulp, and also crop material such as water hyacinth, weed, grass, rice straw, maize stalks, wheat bran, oilseed cakes, and all types of vegetable and fruit waste. With the exception of livestock dung, all other material will normally require grinding before being fed into the biogas digester. Grinding reduces the particle size in order to improve the process of fermentation.
Sizes and prices of polybiogas digesters;
1. Model PTB-1500 (1 cow) Ksh49,300 (complete installation)
2. Model PTB-3000 (1-2 cows) Ksh68,095 (complete installation)
3. Model PTB-5000 (1-4 cows) Ksh86,828 (complete installation)
4. Model PTB-7000 (3-6 cows) Ksh134,854 (complete installation)
These prices are already discounted.
(Complete installation includes delivery, excavation, installation, piping, and single burner biogas stove).
Below is the picture of a complete installation of the polybiogas digester system. This particular unit is one of the 5 digesters installed with support from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) with the objective of generating scientific data on the performance of the digesters. the monitoring processing is still ongoing as of August 2013 and the results will be published in due course. The performance of the digesters has however been excellent. A small unit of 1.5 cubic metres is able to offer an average of 120 minutes cooking time per day. Farmers using pig dung have registered 150 minutes per day. Farmers whose management has been below average have still managed to attain 90 minutes with this micro digester.
The polybiogas digesters have been recieved with much enthusiasm by farmers in various regions where our team has visited. Below is a picture taken during July 27, 2013 at a field day held at Wambugu Farm in Nyeri where our team is collaborating with Wananchi Sacco Ltd of Othaya.
Custom made biogas digesters
We manufacture customized biogas digesters for clients with large amounts of feedstock or to meet special needs such as for cooking in schools, hospitals, communities, groups, and more.
Advantages of polybiogas digesters
1. Easy to install
3. Long lifespan of over 50 years
4. financing available through mainstream banks, saccos and also through a special biogas trust fund managed by MIFUGO SACCO LTD.
Biogas generated by the POLYBIOGAS MODELS can be used for various household uses such as cooking, heating, lighting, and even running engines to replace diesel fuel. Households that generate surplus biogas normally use the surplus in income generating activities such as baking and processing milk. Some clients will also opt to sell biogas to neighbors using metered grids.

Overall, generation of biogas will contribute to a reduction in household expenditures by reducing consumption and utilization of LPG, kerosene, charcoal, firewood and electricity. Alternatively, generation of biogas will improve income generation for the household.
Adoption of biogas technology will aide in protecting the environment by reducing tree cutting and charcoal burning, Biogas technology returns to the environment a bio slurry that is rich in N.P.K which is highly recommended in place of chemical fertilizers. When bioslurry is applied on crops the nutrients are taken up immediately.
The PolyBiogas Model is manufactured by POLYTANKS LTD and installed by Cypro East Africa, Cypro Court, Church Rd-Oloolua, Ngong Hills, Kenya. Telephone 0711552655
A launch of the revolutionary polybiogas digester was done on June 20, 2013 at the Climate Innovation Centre (CIC), Strathmore Business School.

FIXED DOME CONCRETE BIOGAS MODELS
Since 2011, Cypro East Africa has installed various sizes of biogas digesters. These range between 15 cubic metres and 500 cubic metres. For digesters below 15 cubic metres we recommend PolyBiogas models www.polytankskenya.com. In the following pictures cypro biogas technicians are seen constructing fixed dome concrete digesters.
