DESIGN OF A BIOGAS DIGESTER FOR MIDDLE-CLASS FAMILIES; CASE STUDY AT MR. JOASH MOKAYA’S HOME IN ONGATA RONGAI.
Documentation : 

The urban Kenyan middle class is greatly dependent on fossil fuels (as of 2015; 32.93% of electricity generated countrywide was from fossil fuels too) while also producing massive amounts of waste every year. Therefore the carbon footprint of this demographic is driven up from two sides: emissions from fossil fuel use and accumulated organic wastes producing landfill gas. This coupled with the ever growing population increasing the energy demands, have strained our natural resources such as forests ,consequently water catchment areas, eventually leading to global warming.

This project’s objective therefore, is to help solve these problems through the design of a biogas plant that uses kitchen waste combined with chicken droppings, killing two birds with one stone by aiding in waste management as well as supplementing growing energy demands.
