Shit thats a gas

Post by Duncan » Sun Aug 03, 2014 4:48 pm

The old lady in the village does not know what she is doing but is quite happy with the cow shit and straw that she shoves into the digester and get free gas for cooking . It does work as I have seen her boiling water on the gas stove. It's been in operation since 2011 and cost her $500.

Yeah, our province family has one. Provides cooking gas and lamps for 3 houses, as well as fertilizer for the rice paddies.

That, combined with the solar panels, means they almost never have to use the generators.

Its a pretty cool project brought to you from SNV (Dutch NGO). They started in only a handful of provinces but they are rolling it out across Cambodia in a structured way. Not only is it cool technology, its also made by local craftsmen who have been trained by SNV.

This is the programme's website which covers everything about it http://www.nbp.org.kh/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

For once a real NGO actually doing some good for the average Cambodian.

Very cool project :
NBP, a government owned programme initiated by the Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries and SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, markets locally produced domestic biodigesters to rural farmers. The biodigester converts manure into biogas, a clean and convenient cooking and lighting fuel, which eliminates the need to use non-renewable fuels such as wood and charcoal. The overall objective of the phase 1 (2006-2012) of the Programme is the dissemination of domestic biodigesters as an indigenous, sustainable energy source through the development of a commercial, market oriented, biodigester sector in selected provinces of Cambodia. From 2006 until December 2012, the programme as significantly achieved biodigester construction 19,173 units with 100,000 direct beneficiaries. In the new era of progamme, the overall objective in phase 2 (2013-2016) is the establishment of a self-sustaining, market driven national domestic biodigester sector.
