Register now for the third RedBioLAC Webinar on 12th June 2019

News from WISIONS posted on June 3rd, 2019

The upcoming third webinar of our partners RedbioLAC conceptualizes the contribution of biogas to the consolidation of the goal to reduce carbon emissions through Brazil's ABC Plan. This plan aims to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by promoting emission mitigating technologies, for example treatment of animal waste and the use of Biodigesters. Read moreMinimize

The ABC Plan is an integral part of Brazil's nationally determined contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 37% by 2025 and 43% by 2030.

Through the Plan, the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) promotes the adoption of emission mitigating technologies, such as the treatment of animal waste. 

In this webinar it will be possible to contextualize the ABC Plan and detail the Brazilian strategy to expand the treatment of animal waste through biodigestion.

Los biodigestores en el Plano de Agricultura de Bajo Carbono de Brasil

Contribución del biogás para la consolidación de las metas de disminuir la emisión de carbono por medio del Plan ABC de Brasil

Ciclo de foros virtuales: Gestión sustentable de residuos orgánicos agrícolas y urbanos mediante la innovación tecnológica del biodigestor

El Plan ABC es parte integrante de la contribución nacionalmente determinada brasileña de reducción de la emisión del 37% de los gases de efecto invernadero hasta 2025 y 43% para 2030.

A través del Plan, el Ministerio de Agricultura, Ganadería y Abastecimiento (MAPA) fomenta la adopción de tecnologías mitigadoras de emisiones, a ejemplo del tratamiento de desechos animales. 

En ese webinar será posible contextualizar el Plan ABC y detallar la estrategia brasileña para ampliar el tratamiento de desechos animales a través de la biodigestión.

GERES Final Capitalization Conference on Biomass for the Cambodian Garment Sector

News from WISIONS posted on May 31st, 2019

Our cooperation partner GERES finalized the implementation of their 9-month knowledge exchange project, aiming to facilitate a knowledge exchange in order to promote the switch to sustainable biomass energy supply in the Cambodian garment sector. On the 19th of March 2019, GERES hosted a final one-day capitalization conference in Phnom Penh. Direct Link to the Knowledge Exchange Project Read moreMinimize

At the conference GEREStogether with national and international experts presented results of preceding studies that identified successful technologies and best practices to rice millers, investors, factory owners, biomass suppliers, international brands and public authorities. 


The Capitalization Conference was a clear success and met the expectations of both the participants and the organizers. There was the opportunity for the 94 participants to learn about the findings and experiences from prior activities of GERES, gaining insights into solutions for sustainable thermal energy generation through round tables as well as discussions with professionals and experts. GERES was able to gather 14 invited experts from seven different South East Asian countries for the round table discussions. Eventually there was the possibility of networking for the stakeholders to meet and engage with each other. Two objectives were set and met: 

(1)  Knowledge dissemination and awareness rising through sharing GERES’ findings and distribution of created information materials. 

(2)  Networking opportunities created business contacts between rice millers and garment factory representatives.
