AGAMA Biogas is the lead technical partner in this 5-year WRC project, which is being led by the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

The research outcomes will determine the impact of installing biogas and rainwater harvesting systems on grassland systems, fodder production, livestock health and rural livelihoods.

We are now well into the second year of the project: recent activities include visiting sites in the northern Drakensberg area of KwaZulu-Natal (Ukuhlamba), the Lady Frere areas of the Eastern Cape, and the Giyani area of Limpopo. AGAMA Biogas will be installing eight integrated biogas digester systems in these 2 areas this year, plus two more systems in the Giyani area of Limpopo during the course of next year.
