Utilising organic waste products from agriculture and sanitation for circular energy production
With a generation of over 105 billion tonnes of organic waste globally every year, biogas can improve the quality of life for people in the remotest villages, operational at all scales. Biogas can reduce global GHG emissions by 10%, however only 2% of organic waste is currently treated and recycled. CarbonClear is currently in discussions with potential partners and intends to develop pilot demonstrations.
Bacteria is used to break down organic waste in the form of scraps and animal manure, producing biogas and fertiliser. This solution can reduce the need for agricultural inputs, increase productivity, reduce vulnerabilities and decrease general emissions. There is largely untapped potential in these programs, which we aim to seek and test.
