ESTABLISHMENT OF DEMO BIOGAS PLANTS AT BUGOGO VILLAGE AND BUGOGO PRIMARY SCHOOL, SHINYANGA.
Context:

Supply of woodfuel in Shinyanga is in crisis. Due to its arid conditions and large numbers of livestock, there are hardly any forests left that can facilitate supply of woodfuel. Households of pastoralists use cowdung for fuel. Other households use fencing plants locally known as “Minyaa” for fuel. Considering that cowdung and human faeces could be raw materials for biogas, this project intends to promote wider uptake of biogas technology for cooking. Two models will be demonstrated: (i) Institutional model, which is appropriate for institutions such as schools and (ii) households model which is appropriate for individual households.

About the Proponent:

CAMARTEC is an organization based in Arusha. It has vast knowledge and expertise spanning over 20 years in agricultural mechanization and rural technologies. It has installed biogas plants in schools, prisons and household in and outside the country.

Project’s Primary Objective:

To demonstrate the use of biogas as alternative energy for cooking in woodfuel crisis of Shinyanga District.



Implementation Strategies:

1. Install a demo biogas plant of an institutional model at Bugogo Primary School, Shinyanga
2. Install 20 household model biogas plants at Bugogo village for demonstration

Project sustainability strategies:

1. Train school students and teachers on how to operate and maintain the biogas plant on daily basis
2. Train recipient villagers and all other villagers on how to operate and maintain household biogas plants
3. Biogas is a need based technology. It will be the key source of energy in areas where supply of woodfuel is in crisis

Anticipated project Results:

1. Institutions in Shinyanga district particularly schools will replicate this cooking technology for use in their respective schools
2. A number of cattle keeping households are also expected to adopt it as a cooking technology, which is easy to apply
3. Biogas by-product, also known as slurry will be used as fertilizer for back yard vegetable gardens
4. Women workload for collection of woodfuel estimated to be 4-5 hours daily will be excessively reduced
5. At the global level, emission of methane from cow dung which is a green house gas will be reduced since much of the cow dung will be used for biogas production
