Domestic biogas (fixed dome) generated from animal waste
Carbon project (GS VER)
Biogas is a clean energy source produced from livestock and agricultural waste. The program aims to disseminate fixed dome digesters and establish a thriving domestic biodigester sector based on a market-driven approach for sustainable
energy in Cambodia.
The biodigester converts animal manure into clean biogas and organic fertilizer, providing a way for individual households to reduce their dependence on polluting fuels for cooking and lighting.
This clean energy generates time and money savings for users while reducing deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions. It also creates a smoke-free cooking environment, producing a positive impact on respiratory health, especially for women and children.
The organic fertilizer generated from the system also reduces how much farmers spend on chemical fertilizer while improving crop yield leading to greater produce income.
The program operates in 14 provinces with 27,077 biodigesters built benefiting 148,924 direct users.
