Cameroon Students Turn Septic Tank, Pit Latrines Waste Into Biogas
It is high time to turn waste into renewable source of energy, and students at a school in Cameroon’s Douala city have taken a similar step.
The Green Girls Project CEO and founder said the idea of converting waste into energy came from the need to help students keep up with their studies in areas without electricity.
The Green Girls Project is a non-governmental organization in the country and trains young women in technology. It helps in turning waste into biogas.
The project of Monique Ntumngia is learned to tackle pollution and provide cheap and renewal energy solutions to those parts of Cameroon where electricity is a big problem.
Monique said the source of power in their process can be anything from discarded fruits to grass and even chicken droppings. A mixture is first made of those and poured into a bio-digester. The biogas produced is used for heating, cooking or powering small generators that can run electrical appliances of household.
It is further learned the project has partnered with Bioenergy-Cameroon too in installing such equipment that is capable in turning up septic tanks and pit latrines waste into biogas.http://www.dailynewsz.com/cameroon-students-turns-septik-tank-pit-latrines-waste-into-biogas/http://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Cameroon-Students-Turns-Septik-Tank-Pit-Latrines-Waste-Into-Biogas.jpghttp://www.dailynewsz.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/Cameroon-Students-Turns-Septik-Tank-Pit-Latrines-Waste-Into-Biogas-300x289.jpgEducationworld newsbiogas,cameroon,green girls project
