How a Kenyan coffee farmer uses cow dung to produce energy

Zeddy Rotich, a coffee farmer from Kericho County, explains to CNN the benefits of using biogas:

“It produces so clean energy. It is sootless, and even my silverwares are stainless. They don’t stain compared to the other older type of energy where I used to cook using wood fuel. Because it is a government regulation not to fall down trees. Therefore, it is so hard to get even firewood to cook and you have to cook for the family. Nowadays I don’t even use wood for cooking. Because initially I used to wake up early in the morning and collect firewood fast, and it will consume a lot of time. And that one also means I go to my coffee farm very late hours after taking a lot of time collecting firewood.”
