Waste to Energy: Lessons from South Africa
When you talk biogas in Kenya we quickly think about the small plants that we have within households used as source of cooking fuel and lighting in some instances. Commercial biogas plants have not picked up in Kenya as yet. The narrative is different as I would find out from my visit to the largest biogas plant in South Africa. Bio2Watt a company in South Africa has redefined the renewable energy industry and is producing energy for lighting. The Bronkhorstspruit Biogas Plant (Pty) Ltd has a capacity of 4.6MW energy production which they produce and sell to BMW South Africa.
