Dutch government supports Kenyan biogas

The Kenya Domestic Biogas Programme, which will see the construction of 8,000 biogas digesters across 28 districts in Kenya, Africa, is receiving a helping hand from the Netherlands.

The Dutch government will invest KES200 million (€2 million) in the programme while beneficiaries will raise the other half in order to implement the Sh50,000 each digesters.

Each digester will run off a daily supply of 30kg of animal waste to generate two-and-a-half hours worth of gas and enough electricity to power one light bulb.

As well as Kenya other African nations such as Ethiopia, Uganda, Senegal, Burkina Faso and Tanzania are also implementing biogas projects.
