Samoa Observer, 5th October 2018
Twenty farmers were taken through a hands-on Training organised by the Samoa Farmers Association (S.F.A.) on Fiber reinforced plastic Biogas Digesters this week at the China Samoa Agricultural Technical Aid Project (C.S.A.T.A.P.) training farm.
Implemented by S.F.A. and Biogas Institute of Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs (B.I.O.M.A.) and funded by the U.N.D.P, the three-day training ended with a demonstration of installation at C.S.A.T.A.P. and after ten days, the digesters are expected to be installed house by house.
Livestock farmers and vegetable growers were prioritised for the project because manure is vital to producing the biogas.
Senior Engineer for B.I.O.M.A, Yan Long, said the biogas technology is very important for climate change because it could reduce the emissions in three respects.
