Abstract: TFrom time to time researcher developed different types of electricity generating device s. Because electricity and home lighting are considered essential for a country’s economic and social developments. GH24 bio generator is a device that converts the chemical energy of waste organic compound into electricity (light) using naturally occurring microorganisms found within the waste. 40 cm height, 20 cm width, 60 cm length, and 3.5 Kg mass prototype was developed. The prototype was composed of four reactor chambers, sample inlet pipe, bridge, gas outlet pipe waste disposal pipe and upper and bottom protective layer. The greenness, simple operation and effective design are characteristic of the devices. Prototype testing was performed using a liquid dough as a sample. A maximum of 3.403 V was generated when the GH24 bio generator prototype operated with 3.5 L of waste liquid dough sample. This renewable energy is given light for 10-12 hr. using one light bulb. The device could be used as an important source of light for people living in off-grid access to electricity area. Other benefits of the device is used to minimizing the health and environmental impact of fuel-based lamps by replaced it.
