Dear collaborators,

Our project due to the support of this Great Entity proceeds offering us help to continue our effort to improve our environment.

Beyond our already mentioned applications of the biodigester in rural communities, we recently improved it to be used in private residences, resorts and entire communities.

Through annexed photos you will be able to see an antique pit, used by five needy poor families in the basement of an old home, now replaced by a biodigester.

On another photo we can see an old biodigester totally  buried underground. We can observe the pre-existing and the new  existing system.

Before entering our biodigester, the sewage of ten houses go through a double process of grating and sifting to eliminate non-biodegradable materials. This facilitates the anaerobic bacterias to perform its work.

Once again the biodigester comproves itself as an efficient utility that utilizes the best and proven techniques to better and save our environment.

It is a very low cost sewage treatment that permits the best way for society to turn its organic waste into a clean and reusable utility.

This process will also generate energy through the production of methane gas depending on

the size and the number of people using it.

The importance of the help offered us by your entity and collaborators is highly appreciated.

The environmental, social, economic and health benefits offered to the communities by the biodigesters are proven.

Sincerely and gratefully,
