Clean energy for the Ugandan dairy industry: Biogas for milk cooling

The project will install and operate 6 bio-digesters at milk cooling centres in West Uganda. The bio-digesters produce biogas that will be used to co-fuel a diesel generator that powers the milk cooling facility. This will reduce the diesel consumption which will enable a higher milk price for the farmers. Apart from biogas, the bio-digesters will produce bio slurry that will be converted to organic fertiliser pellets rich in NPK that can be used for cash crops.

The demonstration project will allow the Project Developer to prove the BOT business model to potential customers as well as to potential investors for future scale up.
