RedBioLAC is a consolidated and very active network of individuals and organisations involved in applied research, implementation and advocacy on biodigesters. Their aim is to contribute to the proper management of natural resources while promoting socio-economic wellbeing in Latin American and Caribbean.
RedBioLAC’s vision is to become the leading organisation providing research, development, implementation and advocacy in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) for the use of biodigesters to stimulate the sustainable management of natural resources and promote people’s socioeconomic wellbeing in LAC.
Biodigesters can help to improve the livelihoods of rural households in the Global South in different ways. They allow treating flows of organic waste, thereby improving the in-farm management of soil. The by-product of the treatment is biogas, a combustible gas which can replace other unsustainable fuels. Additionally, the effluent and sludge produced by the process are of great value as organic fertilizer.
RedBioLAC came into existence in 2009, following a WISIONS project that focused on sharing experiences on the use of biodigesters in Latin America.
Attention Researchers! Our partner network RedBioLAC is calling for your research on biodigestors, biogas, anaerobic digestion or bioles. The network…

The focus of the project is to demonstrate the potential for producing biogas from slaughterhouse wastewater treatment in Ecuador. Previous research in Bolivia has shown the viability of treating wastewater using tubular digesters with low cost anaerobic filters.
This project aims to validate the feasibility of an innovative approach to the productive use of biogas in dairy and pig farms in Costa Rica, avoiding the use of electrical generators.
