Project Description

The Waste to Fuel project reduces methane emissions on subsistence farms in Uganda with the help of biodigesters. These systems transform manure into resources that can cut down on costs for farmers and their families: clean biogas fuel to use in their homes for cooking and heating, as well as fertilizer to feed their crops. Contributions to this project aid our partner in making these systems more financially accessible to low-income farmers.

Quotes About the Project

Use these quotes from our team and project partners to communicate how your contribution makes a difference.

"Contributions to this project allow the biodigester provider to increase access and add flexibility to the payment terms of these systems, making the technology economically accessible to low-income farmers, vastly expanding the scale of biogas technology distribution in this region"

Author: Kirsten McKnight, Director, Native

“Contributors are helping small-holder farmers in Uganda by financing biogas plants to transform organic farming waste into practical and sustainable resources such as clean and renewable energy (biogas) and biofertilizer, all the while reducing carbon emissions.”

Author: Alexander Eaton, CEO & Co-Founder,

A local Ugandan farmer and small biodigester. This project helps farmers improve their livelihoods by turning organic waste produced on the farm into a valuable resource.


A biogas fuelled cookstove prevents methane emissions since it uses the methane gas that would otherwise have been emitted from the decomposition of organic waste. By displacing the use of firewood, biogas cookstoves also improve indoor air quality and reduce deforestation.
