Biogas is a burning issue in Nepal

28/10/19


Access to clean cooking is an important issue in Nepal. Nearly 20 million Nepalis use dirty or solid fuels such as wood, dung, or charcoal for cooking. Since 2012, Renewable World has been promoting household, community and enterprise-owned models of Biogas technologies as a means to promote clean cooking. To-date we have helped 10 communities and a further 614 individual households improve their access to clean cooking, reaching over 4,000 people in total.

In our most recent Biogas project site, we have worked with an existing dairy cooperative to test new biogas technology, with the hope that it can sustainably provide clean biogas energy and agricultural bi-products for small farms and surrounding communities in Nepal.
