Ashoka Fellow Rabee Zureikat’s Zikra Initiative will be holding a workshop on their Biogas waste/energy system on Monday. Check out the facebook event for more info. Looks awesome!
Litter accumulation & disposing large amounts of organic material is considered a problem that leads to soil , water & air pollution , increased global warming , reproduction of insects & rats , and the spread of diseases.
By using anaerobic bacteria to utilize organic waste which produces Methane , organic fertilizer & alternative energy source in an environmentally safe methods , we have what is called Biogas.
The benefits of producing biogas exceed the disposition of waste – which is in itself a feature to be reckoned with- :
* It is a safer, non-toxic alternative choice to regular energy sources .
* Biogas generators can produce electrical energy.
* Biogas does not need filtering or processing , its byproduct consist of Carbon Dioxide and water vapor , which does not cause pollution .
* Has the smell of natural gas, its colorless and nontoxic.
