Enhancing Productive Biogas Use in Agricultural Livestock Activities in Mexico

One of our recent projects in Mexico is already making progress. Implemented by IRRI México together with its experienced team of Sistema Biobolsa technicians, the project aims to enhance the productive use of biogas by small agricultural producers in central Mexico by demonstrating the feasibility of using converted gasoline motors for biogas generated mechanical and electrical energy.

Four project sites were selected by IRRI during the evaluation phase, based on the 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).

The first anaerobic biodigester was installed in July 2014 at one of the farms in the municipality of Rio Coatlán, followed by two others at farms in the municipalities of Huamantla and Soyaniquilpan in August and the fourth in the municipality of Tlayacapan in September.

It is anticipated that the waste treatment systems will be completed and ready for operation by the end of December 2014.

You can find some pictures taken at the project sites below and our SEPS project page here.
