Enable pollutant-free cooking for everyone – economically, ecologically and socially sustainable.
Every year, millions of people die as a result of air pollution in the interior or living room by cooking with an open fire. To combat this problem, the Indian government distributed gas-powered cookers free of charge. However, the gas for the use of the stoves must be purchased with your own financial resources. Buying the gas is often too expensive for the rural population, which is why they continue to cook with an open fire.
— 4 300 000 people around the world die every year from in-house pollution.
— 1 000 000 people in India die every year from in-house pollution.
— 30% of the gas furnaces distributed by the Indian government are not used.
— Women and children are particularly affected here, as they spend most of their time by the fire.
Our project adresses the following Sustainable Development Goals :
With the implementation of simple and cost-effective biogas plants we want to enable the Indian population to use the gas-powered stoves in a sustainable and permanent way.
For this purpose, a biogas plant is built per household, which uses cheap barrels and IBC containers as upcycling. The concept envisages that the household inhabitants operate their biogas plant independently, using cow dung from their agricultural work as well as other biological waste as input.
The respective project start on site begins with the implementation of awareness campaigns and provides for the construction and sale of plants on site.
In concrete terms, we achieve the following advantages for the population:
— Gas becomes permanently affordable, as it is effectively 80-90% cheaper than LPG.
— The health of the population is protected, chronic lung diseases are prevented and coughs and watery eyes are avoided.
— The plant refinances itself after just one year.
— As an additional saving and "by-product" of the plant, farmers receive free organic fertilizer as a substitute for expensive chemical fertilizers.
— The renunciation of firewood prevents further deforestation.
— Women and children no longer have to collect firewood and can devote their time to other meaningful activities.
