With pleasure we communicate to all our partners, collaborators and enthusiasts that our first biodigester with our partnership with GlobalGiving was installed in Valença, RJ (BR).

After searching for the best location to install it we decided to do so on the property of Mr. José Pires who has been using the biodigester to produce thermal energy and utilize its byproduct as a fertilizer in his property.

Here is what he says about its utility:
"You project is very important for our region. It is going to help many needy people. The fertilizer is fantastic and help us save a lot of money. The flame it produces is very impressive! We use it for cooking and preparing our meals! We congratulate you!...Job well done!"

We are doing research to see where to install the next ones.
We are inclined to do so in Rio Preto, MG. Our project is attaining a formidable repercussion and acceptance in the rural areas.
