Alex's story

Alex is a 40 years old young Tanzanian whose family is dedicated to farming and livestock keeping. He relatively lives a decent life compared to most of his neighbors. However, these days Alex and his family are passing through tough times as their family expenditure increases. As the dairy and farming represents his primary source of income, he is constantly looking at ways to reduce his operating costs. He has now decided to install a 6 cubic meter biodigester which allow his family to reduce energy and fertilizer costs, as well as give better treatment to their animal waste. Their cow manure will be processed by the digester into renewable methane-rich biogas and biofertilizer, allowing the reduction on dependence on costly and damaging kerosine and agrochemical fertilizers that degrade soils and contaminate groundwater.
