Biogas in Belize

Dr. Shakira Hobbs has been working with the Sittee River village in Belize for several years to develop an anaerobic digester in the community. Currently, there is a prototype that is functional, but not widely used. This project will initially be focused on creating some sort of manual that will help the community members properly use the digester. However, the long term goal of this project will be to create a sustainable relationship with the Sittee River community and to be able to send a team of EGG students to Belize every year to conduct various engineering projects based on the community's needs.
