Biogas in Manhiça through sustainable low-tech anaerobic digester plants

The project is a pilot project for the realization of 3 anaerobic digester plants for biogas production in the municipality of Manhiça (Mozambique, Province of Maputo). The three plants will be realized in three different areas of Manhiça: one nearby a slaughterhouse, one at a public market and one by a primary school (with a canteen). Each biodigester plant has an energy potential in the range of 443- 448 MJ/day, with a potential biogas production of 22 m3/day. The gas produced will be sold to micro and small economic activities, mainly those who have a small restaurant business (14), and to households (20) for individual consumption. The biogas produced by the plant at the school will be used for the school canteen.
