Biogas - Heat
To make people's lives better while helping to protect the earth's climate, UPM's Sichuan Household Biogas Programme of Activities (PoA) shall provide up to one million low-income rural households in China’s Sichuan province with proven and reliable biogas digesters and efficient biogas cook stoves. The digester tanks are fed with animal manure, previously just discharged into open pits, and convert it into clean and affordable biogas to be used conveniently for cooking, heating, or lighting instead of coal and firewood. After switching to biogas, each participating smallholder farmer family saves.
