Introducing the only biodigester that eliminates 99.9% of your food waste, no matter the weather

MyGug is your partner in eco-friendly food waste management. Unlike other models, the MyGug biodigester works anywhere, in any climate. So you’re free from the constraints of extreme temperatures, variable humidity or even urban versus rural settings. This makes going sustainable easy. Because taking action to save the planet should be a no-brainer.

Over 1 billion meals wasted each day – many from small-scale food services like restaurants and schools

8-10%
Of global greenhouse gases are courtesy of food waste, topping aviation by 5x
290
Million tonnes of food were squandered by food services in 2022 alone
28%
Of world’s total food waste originates from food services, including canteens

What’s more – it’s estimated over 920 billion euros* have been gobbled up by food loss and waste. Yet here you are. Not the type to sit back and watch the waste pile up. Because you see a mountain to climb. Not a hole to be buried in. You refuse to watch those numbers soar. Not when you can do something about it.

With MyGug you get to feel the pride that comes from doing your part – transforming food waste into a valuable resource

See how going renewable is easily do-able

Even the smallest MyGug biodigester can take up to 5.5 kilograms of food waste per day. That gives you up to 3 hours’ daily cooking time and 11 litres of fertiliser. So you directly contribute to a more sustainable future. Every single day.

Food waste goes in. Clean energy and fertiliser come out. But how exactly does it work?

Through a completely natural process called anaerobic digestion.
Diagram of MyGug setup

Your food waste gets macerated before it enters the main tank of the biodigester

It’s then ‘digested’ by bacteria while inside the sealed, oxygen-free environment

The resulting biological process produces biogas for cooking and fertiliser for growing

There’s a MyGug size that perfectly suits your needs

The financial savings are a great boost. But the experience of being in charge of a large proportion of our own waste and getting such incredible value from it has been extremely positive.

We use the biogas for about 75% of our cooking and we produce so much fertiliser we give it away to neighbours.
