Project Launch: 12-16-19
With this World Connect grant, the community organization EcoGen will construct and install a biogas plant at Masitha Waste Transfer Station in Kawale, Malawi. Five women will be trained in production of biogas, a clean and smokeless fuel source, and biofertilizer. They will use household waste from the local waste transfer station as the raw materials for this business. The women will distribute the biogas to ten households for free for three months as a pilot and testing phase, after which the households will be expected to buy the gas upon satisfaction with the product. The project aims to eliminate household use of fuel such as charcoal and firewood which are harmful to the environment. The participants will also earn money through the sale of biogas and biofertilizer, thereby improving the living standards of their households.
