    Quite impressed by Cost-benefit analysis of Biogas plants as explained in the reference ”Biogas Digest (Volume III) – Costs and Benefits and Programme Implementation”. Material is reasonably enough to me get started with biogas technology. The approach is quite simplied and concepts demystified.

    Again very helpful and useful additional reading materials, plus sources of funding which some of us will surely utilise. A very BiG thank you. Hopefully, my and I will find strike gold for our much needed financial support for our agricultural project initiatives in PortHarcourt, Nigeria.

    Frankly, we would appreciate further exposure to some organisations that support creative and innovative projects eg agriculture, power, use of sustainable energy technologies etc in Nigeria.

    nice list of references. How do you get this kind of knowledge down to the farmer(s)? And a farmer who only cares about his crop might not understand the language. I find as is often the case with this type of knowledge, that it makes sense to people who work in government or aid organizations (top down) but is harder to implement with scale from a bottom up approach. The farmer might not have the bandwidth to start thinking of doing things differently and this does not even touch on the issue if finance. Agreeing to implement change is one thing, access to finance is a whole new ballgame.
