Technical Brief – Technical potential for household biodigesters in Africa
Based on the FAOSTAT database, SNV Netherlands Development Organisation assessed the technical potential for household biodigesters by country in Africa. The findings indicate that the number of households qualifying for such digesters amounted to 32,9 million in 2018. This is an increase of not less than 78% compared to 2006. The rise is driven by the surge in the number of agricultural households with access to water and the strong growth of the dairy sector in Africa.
