Abstract:
    This project aims to meet the energy requirements of half of the population using waste that is available in nature in abundance. The by product of the process will be used as a fertilizer.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Pakistan is facing a massive problem of energy shortage. In particular poor farmers in the village areas are suffering in particular. They have tons of animal waste on daily basis. They can utilize this waste to meet their energy requirements.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   68% of population reside in rural areas and they have abundant animal waste available. Around 98 million people can benefit from this if full potential is utilized.That will solve the gas shortage for good. Also the by product of the process produces fertilizer that can save millions in capital.
How will the solution works
    A biogas plant will be setup that will fulfill the gas requirements of the household utilizing organic waste. Gas chamber will be built underground for optimal temperature. Consumer will put in the waste from inlet, it will go through fermentation process and will produce methane gas. The gas pressure will also push the waste out towards outlet that will be collected and used as a fertilizer.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    These plants are being installed in few places in Pakistan.Some of them were government funded and some self financed.But people can not afford to pay the whole sum at once but in installments. We will build a plant by utilizing best available resources that will increase the life of the plant.
