Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Long-Term Impact

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.
