Using Biogas from Animal Waste as Fuel for Institutional Cooking: ab 54.9 EURO Case Study of the Zambia College of Agriculture
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in collaboration with the German International Development (GIZ) is implementing a project entitled "Operationalizing Green Economy (GE) Transition in Africa" in five selected countries: Ghana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique and Rwanda. As part of the GE project implementation activities in Ghana, this baseline survey was conducted in the three selected planning units in Ghana namely, Tolon District (Agriculture Sector), Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (Energy Sector) and Tema Metropolitan Assembly (Waste Sector). The proposed GE options for the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) are (1) Generation of energy from biomass waste such as pellets, briquettes and biogas from organic waste (2) Utilization of energy efficient cook stoves such as Eco-stove at institutional, commercial and household level. Current quantity of biomass waste converted into pellets and briquettes are: Abellon - 25,000 MT per year, Esereso Carbon Products - 4,000MT/year) and Sustainable Energy Solutions - 100 MT of wood off cuts into 30MT of kindling wood sticks per month.
This book addresses the economics of replacing firewood with biogas from animal manure as a potential energy source for cooking in learning institutions which have livestock farms and are located in remote areas. This was achieved through a case study of the Zambia College of Agriculture in Monze district of Zambia, where cooking is usually done on traditional three stone stoves with intermittent grid electricity. The economic analysis was done by comparing the designed biogas system with the traditional method of using firewood and intermittent grid electricity using the net present value (NPV) was used as the main indicator. The results of the economic analysis showed that putting up a biogas system for the Zambia College of Agriculture would not be viable unless the value of the sludge were taken into account. This research is a significant contribution to the study of biogas economics because it provides a framework and methodology for the evaluation of using biogas from animal waste to replace firewood and/or grid electricity in other Sub Saharan African countries and South East Asia.
