Micro Auto Gasification System (MAGS) - A compact energy appliance that uses any combustible waste as its fuel and converts it to clean thermal energy and soil-enriching biochar.

MAGS provides a sustainable, profitable, and ecologically safe alternative to traditional waste management and energy generation for any habitat. This solution relies on the patented “Auto Gasification” process to enable the treatment of all combustible waste on-site, generate clean energy and soil-enriching biochar to be used within the habitat, while producing clean air emissions. MAGS destroys waste on-site, reducing its volume by 95%. Bags of waste are introduced into the machine without pre-treatment, sorting or excess handling. Most types of waste can be treated including infectious waste, food, papers, pharmaceuticals, plastics, packaging, and more. MAGS is an excellent solution for many market sectors and offers economic and environmental advantages due to its energy recovery, clean emissions, carbon sequestration in the soil, reduced environmental footprint, as well as the elimination of transport, incineration and landfilling, resulting in significant GHG reduction.

Key features

  • Up to 1000 kg of waste per day can be processed with MAGS.
  • 95% volume reduction. After treating waste with MAGS, approximately 5% of the initial volume remains as biochar.
  • Produces 90-120 kWh/hr of clean energy depending on the waste composition.
  • 100% diversion of combustible waste from landfill through the on-site treatment of waste.
  • Third-party GHG analyses show that for each tonne of waste treated in MAGS, 1.5 to 3 tonnes of GHG emissions are avoided.


  • Hospitals: ROI ranging between 30% and 50%.
  • Marine market: Annual cost saving associated with the installation of Terragon equipment (MAGS and WETT) on board different types of ships, ranges 13% - 64%.

Maturity Stage

  • Medium and large scale commercialization
  • Small scale commercialization
  • Initial market commercialization
  • Prototype testing in the real world
  • Prototype testing 1:1 in the lab
