  • Kenya : First African Grid-connected Biogas-powered Electricity Plant Comes Online in Kenya
    January 11, 2017
    Africa's first biogas-powered electricity producer to sell surplus electricity to a national grid has come online at a Kenyan commercial farm.

    The plant uses anaerobic digestion (AD) to produce biogas, which is then burned in two cogenera-tion engines to produce the electricity and heat.

    According to Tropical Power, the new biogas plant reduces annual CO2 - emissions by nearly 7,300 tonnes, as the farm is not dependent on the oil-based power in the national grid.
