Conctruction of a biogas plantIn order to supplement the rural households’ energy needs and facilitate better composting of cow dung for agricultural use, AVANI has been working on popularising the use of biogas. Four bio gas plants were constructed in the villages of Bhanyun and Sukna. The construction of two more plants in the villages of D igoli and Koirali is presently under progress. The families in Bhanyun who have been using the bio gas for sometime now, feel that first of all, the workload on the women to collect fuelwood has decreased substantially. They have also saved several trees that they would have been used for fuelwood, if they had not had the option of bio gas.
