Mercy College Envisaj students build a kitchen waste demonstration digester across from the home of Ecovillage leader and organic farmer Fayez Odey Taneeb in the city of Tulkarm. The Taneeb family uses the digester and monitors it as part of our citizen science project with students from Palestines Polytechnic University. With this digester, Fayez and the students are able to compare and contrast results with the identical digester that we built a couple of miles away at the Hakoritna farm for vegetable waste. Solar CITIES team members like Fayez, who are part of our Global Campus, are dedicated to showing that biogas is something that can and should be done at home.
