Biogas a viable means of renewable energy in Nigeria – WAAPP

The biogas plants, he said, could serve a household for 20 years. There are plants, he disclosed that can last for 100 years. Abiodun said operators of the gas plants can use either cow dung or poultry droppings. The droppings would be put into a sealed tank called a digester, where they are heated and agitated. In the absence of oxygen, anaerobic bacteria consume the organic matter to multiply and produce gas that can fuel a generator. For Abiodun, it is a win-win situation. While allowing homes to generate power, it helps farmers to monetise waste. On the whole, biogas programmes are profitable even when the overall cost of the programme is taken into account. According to him, the use of biogas plants to power local households would open up opportunities for rural entrepreneurs. “Many rural households that do not have access to electricity are going to team up to purchase biogas” he said. “With the efforts made by WAAPP, and FCA, there are possibilities of entrepreneurs exploring the range of possible value-added bio-based products, among which are bio-fuel and bio-plastics” he added. For this reason, many entrepreneurs are going to be experimenting with biogas plants to produce electricity and power for small business units. The World Bank, in collaboration with the WAAPP and the University of Abuja, has also inaugurated a biogas facility that would help generate electricity for residents in rural communities. The biogas facility, which was developed by the University of Abuja, was donated by the World Bank/WAAPP to residents of Kilankwa II Village in Abuja. Speaking at the inauguration of the facility, the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Michael Adikwu, said the facility would not only help residents generate electricity but would also serve as a power source for their stoves.
