Re: BioSanGas System - looking for anyone with experience in this field

New publication on biogas sanitation <> FAQ sheets <> Wiki format?

Using a wiki format to draft FAQ sheets or article pages on biogas sanitation is a logical choice in my view. A wiki is generally easy to use and to maintain both itself and the information flow. It can be more thoughtfully edited to create “best of” ideas, communications or other content. And it encourages people to contribute in their own way, on their own time. So in the end it adapts quickly to changes of information and yet keeps a history of it.

At this moment I’m working within Akvo on finalizing some new features within Akvopedia that will support new content generation by content partners. Two examples:

· A “WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet-editor (WYSIWYG), is being extended with new functionality like embedding photos and video and is built into Akvopedia. This editor really supports easy content generation: no coding necessary anymore

· Sections within Akvopedia can now be embedded into other platforms, see www.rain4food.net/wiki/#akvopedia:Rainwater Harvesting . On the rain4food.net website we’ve embedded the Akvopedia section on Rainwater Harvesting, any content changes in this section within Akvopedia, are immediately also published on this website.

So yes: joining forces in extending Akvopedia's Sanitation portal ( www.akvopedia.org/wiki/Sanitation_Portal ) would be great.

Kind regards,

Lea, see interview in German language from 2009 (old & still good) http://www.taz.de/!39519/

Wenn Kommunen keinen Eigenanteil organisieren können - super Indikator, Finger weg! Den Leuten etwas aufzuschwatzen, worin sie keinen Sinn sehen, bringt nichts.

There are benefits of including urine in the substrate.
- Depending on the composition (the C/N-ratio in particular) of the substrate urine can have a significant impact on the biogas yield.
- Another point is that by using urine, the need to add water to achieve suitable dry matter content decreases or in some cases there is no need to add additional water at all.

Happy learning. :)

Indeed a lot is still needed for people to know how, when and why is bio-gas relevant and who should use it, who can install it and where can be installed and how it can be maintained.The goodness of bio-gas systems must be taught to many communities in Africa relate between bio-gas and environment mitigation and proper sanitation management.

Re: BioSanGas System - looking for anyone with experience in this field

I am wondering about Lea's whereabouts!?
Maybe she abounded us and probably HER BioSanGas System project too... :(
