Biogas is a type of biofuel that is naturally produced from the decomposition of organic waste. When organic matter, such as food scraps and animal waste, break down in an anaerobic environment (an environment absent of oxygen) they release a blend of gases, primarily methane and carbon dioxide. Because this decomposition happens in an anaerobic environment, the process of producing biogas is also known as anaerobic digestion.
The action of the microbial bacteria on the waste within the biodigester helps to make nutrients trapped within the waste to be easily accessible. Thus fully digested slurry is such a potent organic fertilizer.
SusEnergetica provides sustainable solutions to sanitation and energy challenges.
SuS energetica deals with customers from all works of life and industry. We target off-grid customers who are not connected to the main sewer lines. We also target ongrid customers who are looking for an alternative way to locally manage their waste due to the ever declining efficiency of the refuse collection services by municipalities.
Most boarding schools in Zimbabwe are located relatively remote areas. As a result they face sanitation challenges. Currently some of them use blair toilets or septic tanks but these eventually fill up and have to be replaced or emptied at a cost. Biodigesters on the other hand have a longer service life of not less than 20 years. Solar can also be installed.
