Elizabeth Koigi, Biogas Project

Date grant awarded: April 25, 2016

In Nairobi, Kenya it is common to use firewood for cooking purposes, often resulting in soot and poor air quality. To best address this alongside deforestation, Elizabeth Koigi has created the Biogas Project, allowing community members to be introduced to more sustainable systems for cooking, lighting and heating. A clean source of gas will be produced when hydrogen sulphide and carbon (iv) oxide are released together with methane gas.
