Biogas

Biogas digesters utilizing cattle manure available on the farm will generate significant environment, economic and social impact by improving the rural environment and living conditions of the individual households while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. In addition to reducing the Greenhouse Gas Emissions from improved animal manure management and reducing burning of fuel-wood it has the following benefits: Anaerobic treatment of farm manure will result in reduced water pollution and threat of spreading the infectious diseases transmitted from animals to people as well as by improved living conditions for the households. Improved indoor air quality from substituting fuel-wood with bio-gas, decrease of respiratory diseases, especially among the women and children. Reduction of use of fuel wood for cooking will lead to the wood cut reduction and land degradation in the project surrounding area. In addition annually one digester will provide for the production of 15-32 tons of organic fertilizer contributing to improving food supply through increased yields of crops and overcoming existing malnutrition problems.
