we’re helping Renewable World tackle hunger in Nepal using innovative plastic bag biodigesters

In partnership with

 

the project

50 million homes around the world use biodigesters but 3 billion people still use coal, wood or dung for cooking.  Renewable World wants to change this, and make sure people are able to grow more food using organic fertiliser at the same time as generating biogas. Biogas is created by a biodigester, which is a bit like a mechanical stomach. Organic material goes in and is broken down by bacteria in an oxygen-free environment to create biogas, a cheap source of renewable energy that can be used for cooking, replacing more expensive and harmful fuels.  Anything that’s left over can be turned into highly productive organic fertiliser.  It’s a great way of solving two big problems at once, bringing long term change to Nepal’s hungry by improving farming and strengthening livelihoods. Inspiring stuff.
