This multi-award winning Gold Standard project provides farmers with a way of producing their own renewable fuels from animal manure.
Biogas digesters are installed that capture the potent greenhouse gas, methane, from organic materials that are fed in to it, such as crop waste, animal and human excreta. Methane creates a warming effect 34 times stronger than carbon dioxide over one hundred years.
The methane gas is used for cooking, power, and basic lighting. This renewable fuel would otherwise come from dirtier, unsustainable sources.
The residue from the digester, bio slurry can be used as a powerful organic fertiliser, that bring down the cost of agriculture and significantly improves crop yields.
There are now 158,500 digesters installed, which on average save 5.9 tonnes of CO2 each year.
