The biogas production facility at Project Wadi Attir was recently completed, bringing the project one step closer to finalizing its integrated infrastructure of green technologies.
The biogas production facility demonstrates yet another waste-to-resources process at Project Wadi Attir, utilizing manure from the project’s herds and wastes from the Visitor’s Center to generate methane gas. Wastes decompose in a biodigester, and gas generated during the process is used for cooking in the Visitor’s Center. The system will also act as a demonstration for local farmers, by which they can learn how to create similar systems on their own farms. The biogas system was implemented with the oversight of Professor Amit Gross, from the Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research at the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev.
Now with the biogas system completed, only one final step remains in completing our integrated infrastructure of green technologies: our solar energy and storage system. Completion of the entire system will result in the accomplishment of one of the key goals for Project Wadi Attir, demonstrating its commitment to maximizing the use of renewable resources, limiting harmful emissions, and striving for near-zero waste.
