FasoBiogaz SARL

Description

In October 2015, FasoBiogaz SARL has successfully started electricity production in West Africa's first grid-connected biogas plant, in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso. Electricity is being distributed by SONABEL, the country's utility. FasoBiogaz is supported by the Dutch government.

The power plant is situated between the municipal slaughterhouse of Ouagadougou and the country's leading brewery. Waste streams from those companies are used to generate biogas (CH4), whilst transforming them in valuable organic fertilizer. In addition, a side product of the process is industrial heat. You can find more information here.

A video of its inauguration is available here.
