The launch of the capacity building partnership in Nigeria kicked off with its inaugural session. It provided a comprehensive overview of the evolution, trends, opportunities, and challenges within the country's decentralized renewable energy sector.
What are the major barriers to diffuse and adapt biodigester technologies in developing projects? By underlining the environmental and economic advantages and encouraging further investment projects in biogas plants, major challenges and potentials must be identified. For this purpose, RedBioLAC invited Marirela Pino and Luis Santisteban to share their knowledge and experience in biodigestion at small, medium and large scale. Register here
