Zimbabwe capital urged to house biogas facility

Harare City in Zimbabwe has been told to welcome a Ministry of Energy and Power Development biogas project by the government.

The city council has been reported as being wary of the project but local government, rural and urban development officer Ignatius Chombo says fears of gas explosions were ‘unfounded’.

‘I hereby direct that the council cooperate with the Ministry of Energy and Power Development so that the biogas project at Mbare Musika is up and running by the end of April,’ he was quoted as adding.

The biogas project would generate electricity for the immediate environs of Mbare Musika from various waste products and the city is not expected to fund any part of the venture.
