  1. Anaerobic digestion, or biodigestion, involves the microbial degradation of organic materials in an oxygen-free environment. Feedstocks for anaerobic digestion include livestock manures, crop residues, culled fruit and vegetables, food waste, and other organic by-products. The process produces...  
  2. Lightning Talk, ECHOEast Africa Pastoralist Symposium, March 29, 2022. Presenter: Herry Kirimbai  
  3. This study investigated the main factors influencing digester temperature and methods to reduce heat losses during the cold season in the subtropics. Four composite digesters (two insulated and two uninsulated) were buried underground to measure their internal temperature (C) at a depth of 140 cm...  
  4. 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...  
  5. 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...  
  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. Abstract, Biofuel Research Journal, 2016 One of the greatest challenges facing the societies now and in the future is the reduction of green house gas emissions and thus preventing the climate change. It is therefore important to replace fossil fuels with renewable sources, such as biogas. Biogas...  
  8. Opportunities for Practice Change are examples of actual activities focusing on changes in manure policies and manure management practices which have or will have apositive impact on the livelihoods of farmers and theenvironment.  
  9. This review was initiated by Dr. Morton Satin in FAO Rome, Chief of the Food and Agricultural Industries Services in the Agricultural Service Division, as a result of many requests for information on BIOGAS TECHNOLOGY suitable for Developing Countries. The generous help and collaboration of the...  
  10. Biogas is a clean cooking and lighting fuel that can be produced at varying scales; from small household systems to large-scale commercial plants producing several thousand cubic metres a day. Biogas can be used for electricity generation, heating, cooking, process steam and powering farm...
