- Converting animal waste into clean energy via biogas digesters
This unique project in Vietnam encourages the adoption renewable energy by households across the country. Most rural households in Vietnam keep animals and by installing a biogas plant, any family with several farm animals can create enough energy for their household use. The project reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 550,000 tonnes by year.
By reducing the use of fossil fuels and non-renewable biomass, and by preventing animal waste from releasing harmful methane gas into the atmosphere, the project affords massive greenhouse gas reductions, while making sustainable energy and development available to more than 840,000 people.
