Videos: Piloting biogas innovation in Yemen as a source of clean energy and organic fertilizer

The implementation of biogas technology in rural communities in Yemen aims to address the challenges of energy access, low agricultural productivity, and environmental degradation by increasing the availability of organic fertilizer, improving crop yields, reducing deforestation and desertification, minimizing soil erosion, and enhancing food security and livelihoods. Biogas is an environmentally friendly, renewable energy source produced by the breakdown of organic matter such as food scraps and animal waste.

About the Videos:

At DRC Yemen, we recognize the crucial role of sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions in addressing critical challenges. That is why we are harnessing the potential of biogas, a clean, renewable energy source derived from organic matter, to tackle multiple issues at once.

One of the key benefits of biogas is its ability to serve as an alternative source of energy, reducing the reliance on traditional fuels and mitigating the increasing problem of desertification and droughts.

By implementing biogas technology, we aim to provide farming communities with a clean energy source that not only meets their daily energy needs but also contributes to the preservation of natural resources.

Participant testimony

In this video, we share the testimony of a participant of our biogas project, who talks about his experience with the biogas unit:

DRC staff interview

This video features a DRC staff member explaining how biogas production not only provides renewable energy, but also generates valuable by-products. The waste produced by the biogas unit can be utilized as organic fertilizer, offering farmers a sustainable and cost-effective solution for enhancing fodder and crop production. This enhancement in agricultural productivity contributes to improved food security and the overall well-being of communities. Additionally, it helps reduce the labour burden on women and girls who often bear the responsibility of collecting and chopping firewood.
