The first step of the Innovation Lap in Nepal is underway. A thorough consultation of local communities and representatives has now started!
Recording of latest RedbioLAC webinar is now online!
RedbioLAC hold recently conducted a webinar on “Biodigestor para tratamiento de aguas del procesamiento del café” (engl. Biodigester for coffee processing water treatment”). Presenter Osmer Ponce explained in this webinar how much great opportunities biodigester technology can provide in the production process of cafe in Latin America.
The production of coffee is one of the main economic and agricultural cornerstones of South American economies and follows a long tradition in means of production and processes. But in particular this production has enormous environmental impact because of the intensive use of water during the production process, conseqently resultiung in high amounts of untreated wastewater. More than 80% of the coffee bean dissolves in the wastewater, which actually makes it a highly polluting crop for the environment. However, the opportunity to use this untreated wastewater has been considered by the speaker Osmer Ponce (Universidad Catolica de Honduras) as an highly promising source of anaerobic digestion and the following production of renewable energy in biodigestor technology. In this webinar Osmer Ponce presents more infomation about the potential of biodigestor technology in the coffee production processs! Listen and watch here!
