English Version:

Since approximately thirty years biodigestion technology has been applied by the agricultural sector in Costa Rica. However, the current progress is mostly based on the implementation of small-scale agriculture and generally linked to specific government programs, which are generally dispersed and disjointed.

Based on this experience the Asociación Costarricense de Biogás and the WISIONS collaborate in order to develop strategies to consolidate biodigestion technology as a tool to improve agricultural production in Costa Rica. This project is accounted as the WISIONS SEPS Exchange project  “Exchange: Consolidating the Adoption of Small and Medium-Scale Biogas Technology by Livestock Farmers in Costa Rica (SEPS16).

Main milestone in this exchange project consisted of a two day workshop for Biogas Consolidation in July 2019, gathering farmers, government officials, biodigester suppliers and researcher in order to address current challenges for bringing biodigester technology forward in Costa Rica. WISIONS team collaborator  Dr. Willington Ortiz participated in this workshop and gave some reports from it. (WISIONS & Asobiogás Workshop in Costa Rica, WISIONS News 19 July 2019).

Desde hace aproximadamente treinta años la tecnología de biodigestión ha sido aplicada por el sector agrícola en Costa Rica. Sin embargo, el progreso actual se basa principalmente en la implementación de la agricultura en pequeña escala y generalmente vinculada a programas gubernamentales específicos, que generalmente están dispersos y desarticulados.
Con base en esta experiencia, la Asociación Costarricense de Biogás y WISIONS colaboran en el desarrollo de estrategias para consolidar la tecnología de biodigestión como una herramienta para mejorar la producción agrícola en Costa Rica. Este proyecto se contabiliza como el proyecto WISIONS SEPS Exchange “Exchange: Consolidating the Adoption of Small and Medium-Scale Biogas Technology by Livestock Farmers in Costa Rica (SEPS16).
El hito principal en este proyecto de intercambio consistió en un taller de dos días para la consolidación del biogás en julio de 2019, que reunió a agricultores, funcionarios gubernamentales, proveedores de biodigestores e investigadores con el fin de abordar los desafíos actuales para hacer avanzar la tecnología de biodigestores en Costa Rica. El Dr. Willington Ortiz, colaborador del equipo de WISIONS, participó en este taller y presentó algunos informes al respecto. (WISIONS & Asobiogás Workshop in Costa Rica, WISIONS News 19 July 2019).
