Hello from Indonesia, G4CC. I do appreciate your project proposal. However, I have one question. Is there any collaboration with university and or research institution to intensify the analysis of its implementation? Thank you very much,

Hi, I feel the project is situated across a ravine and the required segments to bridge the two are missing and have not been addressed mainly the need to install a sewerage system. The sewerage system will allow for a scalable project which can produce sufficient power at a price lower than that of hydro or diesel thermal plants. Regards

Hi Coachyawe, I understand what you are mean perfectly, in fact the judge stated it clearly in her/his comment, it was well noted. The only issue was that I found myself in a very remote place and lacked internet access to fully edit the proposal with the latest corrections. After the judges comments we resolved to pick 'Adenta New Site', a suburb in the Adentan District of Accra, Ghana as a pilot town. We decided to initiate the construction of a sewerage system that would link the septic tanks of households into a centralized Biogas digester located a bit distant from the town, from the the collected septic waste would be fired for electricity. We also considered offering to pay waste management companies who collect septic waste from households outside our pilot town to bring their waste to meet up with demand in case our pilot town couldn't meet the demand of our digester. We also touched on some other environmental actions we would take to make the project prevent or reduce any negative externality. We were hoping to expand the project after the success of our pilot after a year or two. It is quite unfortunate I couldn't make these changes before the deadline (you should have seen me, I almost wept. well those are the few disadvantages of being in a developing country), but lets see how it goes, if we don't make it we will just have to rework on it for next year. Thank you by the way. Regards

abrahambugre and rolamptey i will advice that you look up the sewage management and energy generation unit created in the western region for the  Military barracks there some years back, It could be helpful as you may be able to pick up some few dos and don'ts from that project. I do not know the agency that worked on it though but the Military unit could be helpful: You an start from ARMY HQ in Burma camp or 37 military Hospital.
