Creating Alternative Energy in Schools

2014 Duggan, San Antonio de Areco, Buenos Aires, Argentina

The Duggan Agricultural School educates on pig, sheep and cattle production, as well as dairy and poultry industry; an industry that not only produces consumer products but also contaminating effluents. They intend to address this problem by installing a biodigester to transform the animal manure into biogas and organic fertilizer for internal use.

Organized and directed by Energizar (Foundation focus on renewable energy) and a group of volunteers of UBA (University of Buenos Aires) they worked alongside the students and headmaster of the school to create this biodigester. This project is an educational solution associated with the environmental care, and it is also an educational tool for students to learn directly in their school how the energy is transformed.
