Midlands Biogas Project

The Midlands Biogas Project (MBP) is proposed as an actual build demonstration project of an Induced Blanket Reactor (IBR) anaerobic biogas digester at a dairy farm in the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Midlands, South Africa. The project aims to demonstrate this innovative technology, applicable to a wide range of small to medium agricultural operations – and secure future investment for further build projects at farm sites. Of specific intent, the project also aims to work with research institutions to ratify the value chains attached to biodigester outputs, specifically the nutrient and monetary value of the digestate fertiliser.
