JKUAT via the Park has teamed up with Rehau, a global polymer processing company, to create a novel product; the Rehau Home Gas System. This is a biogas plant system that efficiently runs on cow dung designed for both rural and semi-urban households. The Rehau Home Gas system is constructed using a special polymer sheet material capable of withstanding UV light and tropical weather conditions for over 50 years.

In November 2015 through a joint effort between JKUAT and REHAU Home Gas, a new equipment production and assembly facility for the production of biogas was installed at JKUAT.
