Project type: Household devices, Renewable energy
Standards: Gold Standard
These Gold Standard projects support low income farmers in rural areas across central and southern China by using their farm animal waste to create clean and affordable energy. The projects install small biodigesters which convert the waste from farm pigs and waste from the household into biogas. The gas is captured and used for cooking and heating - a closed loop solution to providing clean energy, which replaces coal, saving money and reducing indoor air pollution. In addition to the biodigester avoids methane emissions from the normal pit that is used to dispose of manure and it produces an effective fertiliser which can be used on the land.
In addition to reducing emissions to combat climate change (SDG13), these projects provide a number of other sustainable development benefits, including:
