This was the first field deployment of our new “refugee camp” biogas system made from 3 IBCs with a passive solar heating window on the south side. We did field trials at Tamera Ecovillage in Portugal, Kathy Puffer’s homestead in Tilson, NY, and at Janice Kelsey’s homestead in Glenmoore, Pennsylvania.
In addition to building the Solar CITIES 3 IBC Biodigester at the bedouin camp with students from Mercy College’s “Envisaj Mercy Environmental Sustainability and Justice League” Club, we installed two Israeli HomeBiogas systems in a Bedouin Village. We also at stayed at the Auja Eco-Center where HomeBiogas had built two larger, four cubic meter systems to handle restaurant waste.
