Biogas Energy Development Project

by James Otejiri Agbogun - Individual Grantee

Though the Challenge is still in progress, we must express our immense gratitude to all our valuable Donors who were able to donate even in this hard times. We will ensure that our you go with us everywhere we go. We will invite all our Donors to join our face-book page before the end of next week. Next is the BGEDP Blog and tweet, before the website will be available. Updates in the form of Photos, Videos, and publications will be shared.

Functional Small scale Biogas projects are taking place all over Asia at this moment. Small Digesters of different types are being installed in remote villages where the recipients are thought how to use and maintain the facilities. The Techniques for trapping of Biogas for cooking do not require calculus. Neither does it require Automation or huge budgets. Sometimes, it just requires laying of flexible polymers beneath the ground. In our case, we will just re-shape pre-existing suck-away system in urban areas, and install similar structures in rural areas. We wish for a continuous flow of fund to cater for both heat, electricity, and dispersion of projects. But we also said the system is self sustaining. It is in that, once a few projects are established in a territory, they will be managed in a way that will produce new projects so that grants will be diverted to new villages, Towns, or Countries. But we will not just begin to jump into the field creating gas, electricity, and "abracadabra". We will use the little money we have to start the gas project, in the process developing the electricity project in a gradual manner.

This project is indebted to Evoke. It can only pay back by bringing something solid to the table when the next episode begins. And there is no time to say: "no time".

Your comments on this report will be very useful.

This project began April 28, 2010 at 1:30 pm as a conception that came from the first mission that required me to chose a hero from identified social innovators from which i found the works of Mr frederick Msisaka: That a peasant farmer could build a functional small Biogas plant with his toilet was so unique that I began to build my approach around it. The initial attack was to imagine the combination of biogas generation system with a gas stove, kettle, a small steam turbine and an alternator. And it seemed rather a good simple technology that i had to represent it in my "power shift". It eventually became useful in crafting my Evokation. But I had to read a lot of publications on the subject, identifying factors that could potentially militate against it and the possible solutions. I went further to costruct an experimental Digester which helped in coming up with the final BG-CONVERTER.
