Technology For The Developing World
Biogas: Volumes 1 & 2 combines two works that truly belong together. This book will enable you to genuinely understand how to really utilize Biogas in agricultural development at the farm and family level. Volume 1: Biogas, what it is; how it is made; how to use it begins with a thorough introduction to Biogas. This volume includes the information that you need to build a small Biogas unit including what materials you will need, where to put it and how to test for leaks. It goes on to describe which waste materials you should use and how to use them. It also explains how to protect your Biogas unit from weather extremes, maintenance needs of biogas units and much more. Volume 2: building a better Biogas unit follows after Volume 1 perfectly with great insights for those who have been through the first volume and have already built, tested and used a biogas unit or two. This volume is for those who have advanced their understanding of Biogas through valuable hands experience and are ready for the next level. Even if you have built several Biogas units, Volume 2 will give you essential tips that will definitely help you to build a better unit!
Energy For Rural Development $29.95
ENERGY FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT: Renewable Resources and Alternative Technologies for Developing Countries focuses on small-scale energy technologies, not based on conventional fuels that are candidates for rural and village use in developing countries. It also examines the ways in which their candidacy may be affected by technological and economic constraints, present and future. The technologies that this book presents are capable of improving the quality of rural and village life in situations where conventional fuels and power systems have not yet penetrated or are too expensive to become a significant factor in the foreseeable future. This book will provide you with a summary of the state-of-the-art technologies frequently suggested as solutions to rural or individual family energy needs. This book is great for evaluating the potential of each energy source in each candidate situation.
PLUS – in order to get you even more information, in this book, we have included the supplement to ENERGY FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT: Renewable Resources and Alternative Technologies for Developing Countries, which covers small, low-cost, locally-operated energy systems!
