Biogas recovery, heat and electricity generation from effluents ponds in Honduras
The project involves the installation of two biodigesters and a biogas recovery system. The captured biogas from agricultural effluents will be utilised in a gas engine for the generation of electricity for the mill’s internal processes and in two boilers for the generation of heat. If the project is successful and there is enough biogas available ERH is considering the installation of a second generator.

The Ministry of Climate Change and Natural Disasters and UNDP MDG Carbon have issued the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) on Rural Electrification in Vanuatu.
The overall target of the NAMA is to support Vanuatu in achieving the goal defined in the National Energy Road Map (NERM), namely to provide access to electricity to all households in Vanuatu. The NAMA will reduce GHG emissions through the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energies. The NAMA will also contribute to Sustainable Development (SD) benefits, such as improvement of the situation of groups with specific vulnerabilities, women and the poor.
