Projects and Programs
IDCOL has been implementing domestic biogas program in Bangladesh since 2006 with support from SNV Netherlands and KfW. Later, the World Bank also joined the program. 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 June 2017, IDCOL has financed construction of over 46,200 biogas plants all over the country through its 45 partner organizations.
The program saves 44,300 tons of firewood every year worth USD 3.7 million and also reduces the use of 39,300 tons of chemical fertilizer worth USD 9.3 million by producing 274,000 tons of organic fertilizer. The program also reduces the use of 1,400 tons of kerosene every year. IDCOL has a plan to install 60,000 biogas plants in Bangladesh by 2018.
