A high-impact project that can help reduce emissions and help the rural communities.
Life of the biodigesters
Reduction in CO2e emission annually per digester
CarbonWatch's Targeted Project Size
Expected emission reduction from our programme (10-year Period)
The residual digestate is rich in Nitrogen and Potassium, making it sought after by farmers. It can reduce their dependence on chemical fertilizers and reduce their fertilizer costs. Hence, project beneficiaries can sell this digestate to other farmers, earning income and improving their economic standing.
Improper manure management creates a perfect breeding ground for deadly pathogens. Moreover, smoke-related health hazards exist from burning fuelwood instead of biogas. By avoiding inefficient burning of fuelwood, and properly utilizing the manure and other organic waste, the project improves the community’s overall health.
The project frees up a significant amount of time tied to collecting fuel woods and cooking time. A healthier environment reduces the downtime due to diseases. This will help the women in these households pursue meaningful economic activities with saved time.
Children in these rural areas spend a significant amount of time collecting and transporting fuel woods. Reducing this time spent will allow them to pursue education.
The project provides direct and indirect employment opportunities to people through the construction and monitoring/maintenance of biodigesters.
