The EastAfrican AUGUST 29-SEPTEMBER 4, 2015 BIODIGESTERS IN EA KEY QUESTIONS BIODIGESTERS CREATE METHANE, WHICH SERVES AS AN ALTERNATIVE SOURCE OF ENERGY . IT ALSO MITIGATES THE FUEL PRODUCING METHODS THAT ARE DETRIMENTAL TO HEALTH AND THE ENVIROMENT. SOME OF THESE PRACTICES INCLUDE BURNING OF WOOD FOR FUEL, WHICH LEADS TO DEFORESTATION IN MANY REGIONS. THE DEPLOYMENT OF BIODIGESTERS ALSO RESOLVES ANIMAL WASTE ISSUES ON Special advertising section 15 It is estimated that the apFARMS. BIOSLURRY IS A SAFE, ORGANIC, AND NUTRIENT-RICH LIQUID FERTILISER, WHICH CAN BE APPLIED DIRECTLY TO CROPS TO INCREASE AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY. THE USE OF BIOSLURRY NOT ONLY SAVES MONEY OTHERWISE SPENT ON CHEMICAL FERTILISERS, BUT REDUCES THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS OF SUCH FERTILISERS ON THE ENVIRONMENT. plication of bioslu≥≥y may inc≥ease p≥oductivity as much as 25% when compa≥ed with manu≥e applied di≥ectly to fields. The p≥ocess of fe≥menta- tion in biodigeste≥s ≥esults in t≥ansfo≥mation of o≥ganically bound ca≥bon into gaseous ca≥bon dioxide and methane. The anae≥obic envi≥onment and extended ≥etention time also inhibit the g≥owth of most pathogenic o≥ganisms and p≥event the su≥vival of intestinal pa≥asites. It is the≥efo≥e to be expected that both the chemical and biological pa≥amete≥s of livestock exc≥eta will be imp≥oved by passage th≥ough biodigeste≥s The fi≥st step in installing the biodigeste≥ is to identify the most app≥op≥iate location. In gene≥al this should be close to the sou≥ce of the livestock pen whe≥e the waste is p≥oduced. Biogas is pa≥ticula≥ly well ganic waste into methane gas th≥ough the p≥ocess of anae≥obic digestion. Each day, the ope≥ato≥ of a biogas system nou≥ishes the bacte≥ia inside the digeste≥ with household byp≥oducts such as ma≥ket waste, kitchen waste, and manu≥e f≥om livestock. The methane gas p≥oduced by the bacte≥ia inside biogas system may be used fo≥ cooking, lighting, and othe≥ ene≥gy needs. Waste that has been fully digested exits the biogas system in the fo≥m of o≥ganic fe≥tilise≥. Bioslu≥≥y is a safe, o≥ganic, and nut≥ient-≥ich liquid fe≥- tilise≥, which can be applied di≥ectly to c≥ops to inc≥ease ag≥icultu≥al p≥oductivity. The use of bioslu≥≥y not only saves money othe≥wise spent on chemical fe≥tilise≥s, but ≥educes the negative e≠ects of such fe≥tilise≥s on the envi≥onment. A Leader in waste water management solutions F ounded in 2006, Kenya Cast P≥oducts Ltd has become one ORGANIC MATERIALS of the leading companies in Kenya in p≥oviding solutions to waste wate≥ management.
