A smallholder benefitting from the BIRU project in Indonesia
By buying carbon offsets, bp 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.
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 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.
And it means families can save money from fuel savings when cooking and by less need for expensive chemical fertilizer for the fields.
