Biogas technology benefits S Africa's poor

Pilot project that could one day be used across Africa turns organic waste into cheap, clean fuel source.

    A cleaner, cheaper form of energy is helping poor South Africans make the most of waste materials while keeping costs down.

    The new biogas project is still in its infancy but it is hoped this technology could one day be used across the African continent, where poverty and energy issues still plague the majority.
