Household Biogas in Sichuan, China

The Sichuan Rural Poor- Household Biogas Development Programme is the first Gold Standard PoA to be successfully migrated to the new Gold Standard for Global Goals providing independant verification of its impacts against the UN SDGs.

The project both cuts carbon and is improving life for low-income rural households in China’s Sichuan province through the installation of biogas digesters and efficient biogas cookstoves on farms.  This provides a cleaner, more efficient alternative to traditional manure storage pits. The methane produced by the manure as it rots in the digesters is captured and converted into clean biogas for cooking, heating and lighting.

Gold Standard CDM credits are available from this project.  The revenue generated helps individual farmers to cover the cost of purchasing and installing the digester.

The project saves approximately 750,000 tCO2e per year by preventing methane emissions and replacing household fuels such as coal and firewood with biogas.

In addition to GHG emissions avoidance, the project improves life for participating Sichuan farmer households – saving them money on fuel and improving sanitation and health. To date, the project has reached nearly 400,000 poor rural households, each with an annual disposable per-capita income of below EUR 500.

Delivering the Global Goals

 

A recent scientific study by the Center for Sustainable Environmental Sanitation (CSES) at the University of Science and Technology in Beijing (USTB) shows that it contributes to achieving 14 out of 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) including :
