Title: Eco-energy housing in Bolivia with biodigesters and biogas

Bolivia, a nation with abundant natural resources, suffers from inadequate distribution of this wealth. To enable improvement in the quality of life in rural areas far from the grid, this project tackles the problems of ambient air quality, waste treatment, environmental impact and poverty. In a pilot project with nearly 200 installations, biodigester technology and solar collectors have been disseminated in Bolivia up to 4000m above sea level.
