Overview :

Background

The Government of Botswana in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) are implementing a project called “Promoting production and utilization of Biogas from Agro-waste in South-Eastern Botswana (Biogas Project)”. This follows the realization that waste has been taken as waste in the country and this is wasteful as this waste could be used for other uses. The reuse of waste to generate energy is an opportunity that Botswana must tap into for future use. Several waste streams are available at several agro-industrial facilities which can be utilized for generation of energy. Some of the agro-waste for consideration in bio-gas production include chicken manure, cow dung and goat/sheep droppings. Despite this immense potential presented by the abundance of livestock manure, agricultural/animal waste and other forms of biomass in the country, generation of energy from this waste remains a challenge.

 

The Biogas project seeks to facilitate low-carbon investments and public-private partnerships in the production and utilization of biogas from agro-waste in the districts of South-eastern Botswana. It has been realized that there are no suitable demonstration projects for technology penetration as the current use of biogas in Botswana is limited to small-scale applications and there is no institutional biogas plant operating at either an abattoir or a landfill. Also, there is insufficient knowledge among various stakeholders (Government, private companies, farmers, communities, women, consumers about the benefits of biogas and the available technologies. The project therefore, will assist Government of Botswana in addressing these challenges through three project components: Institutional strengthening and capacity development; Facilitation and establishment of biogas plants and Setting up of utilization and knowledge platforms. To that end, UNDP is looking for services of an experienced consultancy firm with local expertise to undertake a detailed Feasibility Study for the Biogas Production in South Eastern Botswana.
