Projects and Programs
IDCOL has been implementing biogas program in Bangladesh since 2006 with support from KfW Development Bank, the World 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 June 2022, IDCOL has financed construction of over 63,400 biogas plants all over the country through its 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 biogas plants: brick-cement based plants and pre-fabricated biodigester based plants.
The program saves 60,900 tons of firewood every year worth BDT 408 million and also reduces the use of 53,900 tons of chemical fertilizer worth BDT 1,200 million by producing 376,000 tons of organic fertilizer. The program also reduces 243,000 ton CO2 consumption per annum.
