Biogas plants play a pivotal role in sustainable development, particularly in African tropical regions, by offering a renewable energy source and fostering social and economic benefits. Situated within West Africa’s foremost tropical research institute, the IITA, a biogas plant serves as a beacon of environmental stewardship and community empowerment.

The plant works by harnessing the power of organic matter. Food scraps, animal waste, and even invasive plant species are broken down by naturally occurring microbes in an oxygen-deprived environment. This process yields biogas, a clean-burning fuel source rich in methane.
