Yuqing and Wenchang Household Biogas
This project supports farmers to build and maintain a household biogas digester in Yuqing (Guizhou province) and Wenchang (Hainan province) counties. Families reduce expenditure on fuel by 40%, whilst improving sanitation for them and their livestock. It also enables long-term access to a source of renewable, clean fuel for cooking and heating – replacing emissions-intense coal. Additionally, the project uses the income from carbon finance to support a network of service stations that provide technical support to households, creating sustainable, long-term jobs.
