A smallholder benefitting from the BIRU project in Indonesia
By buying carbon offsets, Target Neutral is supporting finance for the BIRU project in Indonesia that enables households to produce their own low cost, low carbon energy from animal dung by using biogas digesters.
The biodigesters leave behind bio-slurry - an excellent organic fertiliser
As a result, more than 100,000 people across ten rural provinces, are benefitting from cooking, heating and generating light using low carbon biogas.
Which means some 20,000 tonnes of carbon are cut each year by the project.
And the benefits don’t stop there.
The project also brings new employment in manufacturing and installing the biodigesters
The biodigester leaves behind a bio-slurry - an excellent organic fertiliser that is used to improve crop yields instead of purchasing expensive chemical fertilisers that have their own carbon and environmental footprint.
That means not only reduced carbon but an improved harvest for smallholders.
Farmer Suparjono uses the bio slurry as organic fertiliser on his fields to increase his harvest.
And it means families can save money from fuel savings when cooking and by less need for expensive chemical fertilizer for the fields.
The project also brings improved health from reduced smoke, soot and dust in the kitchen
