Long-term biogas project in Nepal begins
A biogas boiler has been installed at the Alternative Energy Promotion Centre (AEPC) in Lalitpur, Nepal as it aims to encourage local renewable energy consumption.
The gas produced by the 1m3 capacity facility will power the Centre’s canteen for two hours a day via household waste feedstock.
Govindraj Pokhrel, AEPC executive director, was quoted as saying he hopes the town will eventually reduce its dependency on liquid petroleum gas, while managing waste level, through similar projects.
Nearly half of the Rs 25,000 (€320) needed to install the boiler came from a government grant and AEPC has a target to install 500 similar boilers this fiscal year.
