Low cost biodigester as a sustainable energy solution for developing countries

Elizabeth Romo- Rábago - Ciclomanias

Introduction

Biogas is one of the mostversatile energy sources. It can provide a sustainable development and access to clean energy. Currently,over 3 billion people worldwide use solid fuels, such as wood to supply their energy needs.

These inefficient sources of energy are one of the factors that keep a large population in the developing world trapped in the vicious circle of poverty (1). Since biogas is generated by an aerobic degradation of human and animal waste, it can be a promising and affordable energy solution to abate poverty.

This study draws from a broad base of international case studies to evaluate the feasibility of implementing a low cost biodigester at the Jiudao Yakou village.
