Title: Biogas plant for reduction of CO2 emission
The main goal of this project is the reduction of water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions caused by slaughterhouses in Nigeria. Another huge problem concerning slaughterhouses is the lack of specific and effluent sites for their toxic wastes. The project concept is to reduce pollution and minimize greenhouse gases by constructing a sustainable biogas plant. This plant would treat wastewater and produce biogas as a renewable energy source. Hence the biogas plant not only reduces pollution but also provides energy, liquid fertilizer (hence replacing chemical fertilizer), which urban low-income farmers can apply to their agricultural lands, and nutrient recovery. This project would be designed by the biogas technology research group KMUTT (Thailand).
