In order to get more biogas systems across Uganda, visiting an operating digester is key. It is one of the step many of your clients take to enable decision making. We are glad to have Buseesa community together with Engineers Without Borders visit one of our site in Kasisi.

Having a meal cooked on gas from organic waste is one step towards fuel sustainability.

EWB team: Your engineering skills would add value to our work, together we will work on improving the design of the system without compromising quality and gas production. For the next six months or so, we will learn a lot. Keep an eye on our page for more.
