Challenge

The project is located in Valenca RJ and Rio Preto MG, a very pour rural area inside the Atlantic Forest. This native forest is under pressure. The needy farmers works with catty and use the forest as heat energies. The manure goes to the soil and to the river, polluting this resources. The management of this manure produce methane gas that goes to atmosphere causing the global heating. With biodigesters we can provide environmental social and economical benefits for this farmer and for the eart

Solution

With biodigesters the farmers can put all manure inside it. Actually they use a manure pull before discard it in a river on in a soil without treatment. At this condition all methane produced in the pull goes to atmosphere. The gasholder of biodigester storage this gas for the farmer uses. The complete anaerobic system inside the biodigester create a wonderful bio fertilizer to substitute chemical and fossil fertilizers. The farmer obtain time because he stop to cut woods from Atlantic Forest.

Long-Term Impact

We will improve the life of the beneficiary farmers in long terms because they will obtain a free heat energy and fertilizer for all his life and for others generations. They will add value on their production and this is an advantage for all community around the beneficiaries creating new economics situations. Water and soil pollution will be solved for many squares kilometers and many tons of methane and carbon will not go to the atmosphere, affecting positively many people around the world.
