A commercial farm in Kenya has become Africa's first electricity producer powered by biogas
On the farm next door, 40,000 cattle roamed about, chewing the cud that would become brown gold.
The 4.4mW biogas plant sits on land where 30,000 cattle graze. It runs off gas emitted by a fetid mixture of dung, sour yogurt, to discarded dog food.
The plant will be fed 50,000 metric tons of plant waste a year sourced from VegPro Group, East Africa’s biggest exporter of vegetables to the UK.
In only 15 African countries do more than 50% of their population have access to sanitation.
