2 Arsenic poisoning Bangladesh is experiencing the largest mass poisoning in human history, because of arsenic in the ground water. Around 80 million Bangladeshis may be affected (WHO)
3 Lack of electricity and safe water 80% of the population live in rural areas. Around 70% of them are not connected to the national grid electricity.
4 Decentralised energy Decentralised systems for the supply of electricity are the most appropriate solutions for rural dwellers.
5 The project This project is a pilot investment in Bangladesh Livestock and vegetable waste biogas CHP plant integrated with membrane distillation. The purpose is to make both electricity and clean water from the same bio energy.
6 Biogas driven engine and membrane distillation process Distributed power Safe drinking water and Fertilizer all from one input which is manure or vegetable waste.
7 Pilot project description
8 Biogas engine from JDEC Small scale electricity production Well proven technology for small scale CHP Biogas can be used directly in the gas engine Heat of exhaust gas is used for ground water heating Commercially available Technically and economically feasible
9 Membrane distillation technology (MD) Conventional Membrane distillation Conventional small-scale technologies could not remove the arsenic sufficiently Conventional large plants are not feasible for small and rural areas
10 Absolutely pure water Bacteria and virus Fertilizers and pesticides Industrial chemicals Arsenic
11 Representative test results
