SMALL-SCALE RENEWABLE POLYGENERATION IN BANGLADESH FOR ELECTRIC POWER GENERATION AND ARSENIC-FREE WATER PRODUCTION

The Royal Institute of Technology and the Nobel Price winner Grameen cooperate in a project that uses biogas from local dairies, to run a generator, from which waste heat will be used to purify water. Dairy products, electricity and clean water in rural areas would make it possible for the rural people to make a living instead of moving to the slum of the cities on the hunt for a job. SSF will spread this technology in many countries.
