A smart, sustainable solution
The biogas project was the perfect solution to the problem of how to deal with the factory’s organic waste.
A huge project, worth the effort
Our factory in Murang’a, Kenya is on the cutting edge of sustainable practices thanks to the Olivado Biogas Project.
This project was created to find a responsible and sustainable solution for dealing with the waste the factory produces.
These two huge anaerobic digesters, each with 1,400m³ substrate capacity, break down the organic waste from the avocado oil process, creating useable, efficient gas to power our generators.
Biogas is a perfect solution for treating the organic waste from the factory, as it not only offers a renewable substitute to costly and unreliable grid electricity, but it is also an alternative to the environmentally damaging vehicle fuel that is currently used.
On top of that, a by-product from this process comes in the form of a bio-fertiliser from digester effluent, adding further value to this treatment process.
We have designed and successfully installed a system that costs a fraction of other similar systems in the region, while having developed the local skills required to implement and operate such a facility.
