Water Research Commission- Rural Schools

BiogasPro KwaZulu-Natal SmartTop Water Research Commission

AGAMA BiogasPro and SmartTop digesters came on line in this amazing project ...

Monday 30th January 2012 saw us together with a research team from the University of KZN visiting four homes in the Okhombe community, near to Bergville in KwaZulu-Natal.  Two BiogasPro and two SmartTop digesters were installed at the end of 2011, and two of the four are now on-line - very exciting!  Next visit is to the Machubeni area of the Eastern Cape where 5 digesters have been installed under the same project.

    I am very much interested in learn more about these projects.
    i would like to be kept apprised of source of additional information. on this project in particular, or very closely related work.

    As a related matter: I cannot seem to find the "related article" that is mentioned, entitled "Biogas in Rural Schools Water Research Commission: Biogas and rainwater harvesting project "

      Thanks for the interest! We have established this blog with the intention of widening the network of people working in this sector, and in the hope of growing the information base at the same time. We will connect your group to the UKZN team leading this research project.

      On the related content question, thanks for that - it'll be fixed shortly.
