Namisu, Malawi - Project Bulletin 2

Bulletin date: 5 May 2014

After two months in situ the Flexigester S14 is in full use.

The children are using the pour-flush toilets and animal manure and kitchen waste are also being added to the Flexigester.


The liquor removed from the Flexigester is being pumped into the soil donuts to enrich the soil and the gas bags are filling up with the biogas being produced from the waste. There was great excitement when it was found that the gas is burnable but as expected the methane content is low.

The gas bag was hooked up the a stove in the kitchen to heat up some water to demonstrate what it can do.
