The biogas initiative for Mogadishu restaurants will save not only the restaurants’ disposal cost but also reduce the amount of waste thrown into the sea. JikoBiogas is now building biogas systems for restaurants to reduce their waste and costs as they will use the biogas produced for cooking.

Through a joint public awareness drive dubbed “Wasted Food = Wasted Resource” undertaken jointly by Jiko Biogas team and Power Off-Grid team, we have managed to sign agreements of building subsidized biogas plants for more than 50 restaurants. The subsidy is exchanged with CDM (Clean Development Mechanism) rights.
