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 cogeneration engines to produce 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.
