Biogas Mozambique

“Biogas Project”, Bilibiza, Mozambique

The project aims at installing, connecting and starting up several small (6m3) and one large (60m3) biogas units
at the ADPP premises in Bilibiza and in the surrounding area, and training of biogas technicians.
There is no tradition for biogas in Mozambique and there is little animal manure available for biogas production
in the area. The biogas will be produced from residues from jatropha seeds after pressing oil, food residues and other organic material. The gas will be used for cooking purposes, for sterilizing clinic instruments and for co-fuelling the generators at the school centre, thus reducing emissions of greenhouse gases.
