On 28th July, 2015, a 65 cubic biogas digester was commissioned at St. Augustine Schools Nakifuma Mukono. The biogas digester will be operated by Entomocide Entreprises
St Augustine schools are three schools; a nursery, primary and secondary schools of about 1000 beneficiaries. The director of the 3 schools Dr. Martin Buye an LCV for Mukono 2016 aspirant was impressed by the decision of Entomocide entreprises.
The digester will be operate under a unique business model. The schools will be required to pay a premium for the biogas they use. The system will replace at least 65% of the schools’ firewood consumption. This will save the school upto 40% of their energy expenditure.
