PT Biomethagreen Lingga Lestari creates a waste processor called Biomethagreen Biodigester (shortened to Biomethagreen). The wastes that come from domestic food waste and animal livestock waste are processed by mixing with a specific anaerobic bacteria in a container that results in biogas used for cooking fuel and fertilizers for growing crops at the beginning of the innovation. Their advanced research found that liquid fertilizer also contains prebiotics that is good for domestic animal livestock growth. It can make alternative feeds for livestock, especially for feeding fish in the form of Black Soldier Flies (BSF) larvae that are claimed as hygiene flies larvae with high protein.

Since 2008, Dr. Muhamad Fatah Wiyatna, an Indonesian Environmentalist and a lecturer researched waste processors with specific anaerobic bacteria in a container and created an innovation called Biomethagreen biodigester (shortened to Biomethagreen). In 2010, PT Biomethagreen Lingga Lestari was established in Sumedang, West Java province, Indonesia, to sell the innovative product and its derivatives.

The waste produced from domestic food waste and animal livestock waste is processed by mixing with a specific anaerobic bacteria in a Biomethagreen container to produce valuable outputs. The Biomethagreen container could be a communal (big) one and a portable (small) one whose results are biogas. This alternative energy source is used for cooking fuel and fertilizers (Solid/manure and Liquid fertilizer) for growing crops at the beginning of the innovation. Their advanced research found that liquid fertilizer also contains prebiotics that is good for domestic animal livestock to grow. They also found that alternative feedstuff for livestock, especially for feeding fish in the form of Black Soldier Flies (BSF) larvae claimed as hygiene flies larvae and high protein could be produced inside the process by placing BSF to eat the food waste and let them lay eggs in it.
