Climate solution #26
BIOGAS FOR COOKING
Small biogas reactors that can be installed in homes and communities to enable cooking with biogas instead of wood and charcoal stoves which have health and environmental consequences. It is projected that by 2050, small biogas digesters that digest animal and crop wastes can replace 57-87 million inefficient cookstoves in countries in Asia and Africa. The cumulative result: 4.6-9.7 gigatons of carbon dioxide emissions avoided at a net cost of $23-$49 billion.
