Projects and Programs
IDCOL has been implementing biogas program in Bangladesh since 2006 with support from the World Bank, KfW Development Bank and SNV Netherlands Development Organization. Biogas plants not only provide gas for cooking purpose but also produce organic fertilizer for the crops and fish pond. The program helps reduce the use of biomass fuel for cooking. Till November 2018, IDCOL has financed construction of over 48,800 biogas plants all over the country through its 42 partner organizations.
IDCOL finances plants with daily gas production capacity ranging from 1.2 m3 to 25.0 m3 thereby meeting demand of both domestic households and mid-sized dairy and poultry farms. IDCOL currently finances two models of plants: brick-cement based plants and fiberglass bio-digester based plants.
The program saves 47,000 tons of firewood ever year worth USD 3.9 million and also reduces the use of 41,500 tons of chemical fertilizer worth USD 9.8 million by producing 290,000 tons of organic fertilizer. The program also reduces 187,000 ton CO2 consumption per annum. IDCOL has a plan to install 100,000 biogas plants in Bangladesh.
