2014 SEPS Call in Southern and South East Asia
News from WISIONS posted on September 16th, 2014
For a list of countries in Southern and South East Asia see the UN definition.
You can apply for project support if your project or exchange concept demonstrates how renewable energy technologies can be integrated into food value chains not only to minimise the negative environmental impacts (e.g. the contamination of soil and water), but also to improve the social and economic capital (e.g. greater employment opportunities) of the local population in Southern and South East Asia.
Find more information on the application process and application criteria here. For a list of previous SEPS projects, go to SEPS Energy Projects
Enhancing productive biogas use in agricultural livestock activities in Mexico
News from WISIONS posted on October 27th, 2014
During the site evaluation, four project sites have been selected by IRRI, based on criteria of stock size (max. 180 swine or 80 cattle), energy use (farms that depended on non-renewable energy) and waste treatment (farms that used only basic waste treatment systems).
At one of the farms in the municipality of Rio Coatlán, an anaerobic biodigester has already been installed in July, followed by two other farms in the municipalities of Huamantla and Soyaniquilpan in August and the fourth in the municipality of Tlayacapan in September 2014.
The waste treatment systems are estimated to be completed and ready for operation by the end of December.
You can find some pictures taken at the project sites below and our SEPS project page here.
