Produce and then Promote: Sri Lanka has tremendous potential for Biogas
Milroy Lanza is a reputed house constructor in the Chilaw locality. A member of the North Western Province Constructors Association, Lanza was one of the participants at the biogas awareness creation workshop for constructors conducted through the EU-funded SWITCH Asia initiative.
Having vested an interested following the workshop, Lanza decided that he should first build a biogas unit at his household, use it to test its feasibility and success and then promote it as an upselling tool to his future clients.
Lanza himself constructed the 8m3 Chinese type biogas unit in his household. The constructor believes that there is tremendous potential biogas to develop in the country, especially in hotels where wastewater treatment is popular cause of concern. He is determined to try out and test the biogas unit installed in his household for a few months and once he is convinced by the technology is keen on promoting it to his new clients as well.
