Power a house by generating electricity with waste plastic.

As our unstoppable Dung Beetle marches closer and closer to revolutionising waste disposal in South Africa…it performed yet another miracle! This time it’s powering a 5 kW generator. Not only is it running the generator with ease, but it’s also producing extra diesel which can be used for other things. So what’s the source of all this energy? Plastic junk of course. Yup, as usual, The Dung Beetle shows no mercy to old plastic as it provides clean energy for practical applications.

Running a 5kw generator straight from the gas coming out of the Beetle plastic system today! That’s enough electricity for most small houses.
