Biodigesters to improve milk production in Bolivia
Published by Hivos, October 27th, 2014
In this project in Bolivia with financial support from Hivos and the technical support of SNV, a technology is used to convert dung into biogas that can be used for cooking and lighting. The slurry left over from this process is used as an organic fertilizer in order to increase the existing pasture yield and improve grass to feed cows, therefore boosting the productivity and quality of Bolivian milk production. There are already successful biogas programs running in Africa and Asia.
