This project provides one solution to three significant issues for communities in rural Vietnam: what to do with untreated human and agricultural waste; how to minimise the health impacts of burning wood in the home; and how to access affordable energy.
The programme trains local people to build and maintain biogas digesters. These biodigesters turn the waste into the clean, affordable and sustainable energy that they need. It also solves another pressing issue in Vietnam: deforestation. Without the biodigesters, locals are reliant on native forests for a source of energy, so the project also reduces deforestation and helps to preserve Vietnam’s beautiful and precious environment.
