1. 2018-08-09 Session: The Tanzania Domestic Biogas Programme began in 2007 following a positive feasibility study by GTZ. Tanzanian stakeholders established a taskforce and selected the Centre for Agricultural Mechanisation and Rural Technology (CAMARTEC) as the national agency to coordinate the programme....
  2. Abstract, ResearchGate, 2017 Dry climate areas have reduced availability of organic waste an obvious disadvantage for biogas production. This obstacle can be overcome by developing energy crops well adapted to arid areas. In this context, opuntias among them, Opuntia cus-indica (L.) Mill. ...
  3. Sub-Saharan Africa continues to suffer from a major energy deficit, with hundreds of millions of people lacking access to electricity and clean cooking fuels. There is a great need for innovative mechanisms that can help families access clean and affordable energy.The Carbon Initiative for...
  4. Abstract,Advances in Applied Science Research, 2012 A 45 Litres capacity metallic prototype biogas plant constructed at the National centre for Energy Research and Development, University of Nigeria, Nsukka was used to investigate the anaerobic digestion in generating biogas from three types of...
  5. Abstract,Arid Zone Journal of Engineering, 2017 Anaerobic digester is a physical structure that provides a conducive environment for the multiplication of microorganisms that degrades organic matter to generate biogas energy. Energy is required in agriculture for crop production, processing and...
  6. Abstract,IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, 2018 This study aimed at determining biogas production from codigestion of Elephant grass and cowdung using batch digester. Fresh grass was manually chopped with a maximum length of 3 cm. Chopped grass (25 kg) was perfectly mixed...
  7. 2017-11-14 Rural Solutions is a video series that highlights solutions to specific challenges that are common in rural areas of developing countries. Biogas provides an environmentally-friendly alternative to power rural households - but biogas digesters are costly to set up, especially in remote areas....
  8. In the case of the Low-Cost Polyethylene Tube Digester model which is applied inBolivia(Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Centro America and Mexico), the tubular polyethylene film (two coats of 300 microns) is bended at each end around a 6 inch PVC drainpipe and is wound with rubber strap of recycled...
  9. Abstract, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, 2015 The aim of the study was to install a biogas system consisting of three tubular polyethylene biogas digesters at a rural household in Malawi and to evaluate the constructed biogas system with regards to relevant system parameters. The...
