Amazing Imo Man Turns Gas From Soak Away And Pit Toilets Into Cooking Gas (Photos)

Okwudor in Imo State is a place least expected to try this out when we have top notch hotels in Owerri, the State's capital.
Biogas is one way that we can reduce our carbon footprint globally and Imo State, irrespective of being an oil producing state and supplying gas to other places in the nation, has also started building capacity in the area of biogas positioning the state to leverage on the future.

The need to invest in alternative energy is fast becoming imperative as global warming increases on a daily basis. 

Nations are encouraged to reduce their carbon footprints by investing heavily in these technologies no matter how rudimentary it is.

In okwudor village in Imo State, a young man has taken the bull by the horn, and has started investing heavily in this alternative energy by channelling the gas from Soakaway pits and laterines to be used in cooking.

He has done this so perfectly that, people are amazed with his technology.  
No matter how rudimentary this might be, it has reduced the village and the state’s carbon footprint, less kerosene would be used, less trees to be felled for firewood and more money saved. 

Quoting Tim Webb, the young man said; 

“Shits can be useful! 

“Next time you flush the toilet, you could be doing your bit for green energy. After being stored for 18 days, human waste will from today be returning to homes in the form of renewable gas.”
What is biogas? 

It is defined as a type of biofuel that is naturally produced from the decomposition of organic waste.

When organic matter, such as food scraps and animal waste, break down in an anaerobic environment (an environment absent of oxygen) they release a blend of gases, primarily methane and carbon dioxide.
