Zimbabwe and The Netherlands teaming up to promote biogas projects and their benefits

By Obey Manayiti, NewsDay Zimbabwe. 

The biogas project is jointly funded by Hives and Netherlands Development Organization (SNV) and three government agencies from the Ministry of Energy and Agriculture and the Rural Electrification Agency (REA). 

It is being implemented in Domboshava, Insiza, Buhera and Nharira.

Nyararai Madyangove from Chivhu, said the project has proved beneficial to his small-scale dairy farming project, where he needs power to chill milk. He said since the introduction of the biogas project two years ago he has made significant savings.

“It’s now two years since I got my biogas digester. I use it mainly for my dairy farming activities,” Madyangove said.
