África. Resíduos, nanopartículas y biogás


 The Africa Biogas Partnership Programme (ABPP) is a partnership between Hivos and SNV 
in supporting national programmes on domestic biogas in five African countries. 
The Programme aims at constructing 100,000 biogas plants in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Burkina Faso providing about half a million people access to a sustainable source of energy by the year 2017










The plant will add 2.4 megawatt (MW) of power into the grid, using solely crop waste. The plant is fed with 120 tonnes of organic waste from nearby farms


  • Africa’s first grid-linked biogas plant starts running in Kenya; firm plans Ghana project too

The plant will be fed 50,000 metric tons of plant waste a year sourced from VegPro Group, East Africa’s biggest exporter of vegetables to the UK




  • How biogas is bearing fruit in prisons in Rwanda

The National Correctional Service (NCS) has committed to use biogas in all correctional facilities.

The shift to biogas now covers 12 correctional facilities across the country




Energy-thirsty Kampala City Abattoir is often brought to a stutter by the city’s daily power outages, which can last up to 12 hours.Then there’s the problem of the large amounts of blood, wastewater and other waste produced, much of which is drained directly into nearby Murchison Bay in Lake Victoria



  • Zambia Katete school scores a first in biogas energy: first school with biogas in

intends to put up such projects in all rural schools across the country.




New buses, and the rest of the existing Metrobus fleet, will progressively be converted to run on a mixture of CNG/ biogas (70%) and diesel (30%)


The first AGM of the association was held in 2014
