Biogas replaces firewood and artificial fertiliser in India+
MyClimate is building small biogas plants for 9,000 families in India. On the one hand, biogas replaces the need to burn wood for cooking. On the other hand, organic fertiliser is produced, which reduces the use of artificial fertilisers. By eliminating firewood, 6.5 tonnes of CO2 are avoided per biogas plant and year, and 3.7 tonnes of wood are spared. Soot is no longer produced in homes, which is especially good for the health of the women who cook. Moreover, the air quality in the surrounding areas is improved, which has benefited 50,000 people since the project began.
