Jialing China Biogas Project

This carbon offsetting project helps to install biogas units which provide a cleaner and more renewable source of fuel to rural communities.
  • Renewable Energy
  • Sustainable Agriculture



The rural areas of Sichuan province are among the poorest in China. The 2008 Sichuan earthquake claimed nearly 70,000 lives and killed 12 million livestock animals, and the province is still reeling from the impacts.

This project is helping to restore the region and promote sustainable development. It has enabled the construction of more than 400,000 rural biogas units that are used to fuel clean gas cookstoves and produce organic fertiliser for farmers. The units use animal and human waste to create renewable biogas fuel. This results in both financial and health benefits to beneficiaries as they no longer need to purchase coal or endure the negative health implications of burning it.
