The region's slaughterhouse waste is a major source of local water pollution and greenhouse gas emission and is fostering a human health tragedy. A biogas plant will improve lives by producing cheap, clean burning domestic gas for urban poor families and cheap organic fertilizer for low-income farmers. Benefits also include reduction in water pollution (improving aquatic life) and a huge reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
In partnership with the local community, the program will build a biogas plant feeding on abattoir waste to create a cheap, clean source of energy and organic fertilizer for 15 years.
Improves quality of life for the urban poor by providing ongoing sustainable energy. Improves health of the local population by reducing water pollution. Long-term reduction in greenhouse gases.
