The AGAMA BiogasPro is a unique, patented system that is engineered, designed and manufactured in South Africa for African conditions. It is the first small digester to achieve certification by the South African Pipeline Gas Association.

The AGAMA BiogasPro range of biogas digesters are prefabricated to prevent leaks from construction errors. AGAMA BiogasPro has a wide range of waste - to - energy applications. 

The AGAMA BiogasPro SmartTop is a hybrid version of the full prefabricated unit - ideal for rural installations where multiple units will be built using local labour.
