Using existing technologies from the fields of wastewater and sewage sludge treatment for energy generation, LONO has designed and tested a compact multistage digester named the KubeKo that is sufficiently robust for use in both urban and rural settings with continuous and semi-continuous supply of waste. The energy is used on site or shared with neighboring units and users are trained to get the most out of the fertilizer by-product. To build on this experience, a "Smart Village" pilot for integrated waste management and clean energy production in villages of Côte d'Ivoire is being trialed in the coming months.
