Biogas
Date: 2020-06-08
In the French speaking West African nation of Benin (pop. 11.5 million), the International Organization of the Francophonie (OIF) reports it will fund an anaerobic digestion project to convert cassava wastes into biogas at the 350-member cassava production commune of Ze.

The biogas produced will replace firewood used for cooking and the organic digestate from the biogas production will be used as fertilizer in the cassava plantations. The project is expected to be completed before the year end.
