The energy ministry has opened Uganda’s first biogas and renewable energy technologies demonstration site at Ndejje University in Luwero district. The facility’s renewable energy technologies include solar energy, wind power, briquettes and biogas.
Patrick Mulindwa, a lecturer of chemical engineering at Ndejje University, says the facility is to be used for testing and analyzing composition of substances such as samples of cow dung and briquettes are subjected to testing before the final products are set for use by the public.
The lab is seen as one way that will save the country’s small remaining green environment.
