The Programme National de Biodigesteur du Burkina Faso (PNB-BF) aims at constructing about 10,000 biogas plants by end of 2013. Collaborating with training institutions to instill knowledge and skills, PNB-BF has managed to train over 55 masons who have so far, June 2011, constructed 319 plants. About 600 new plants are planned for construction in 2011, and a gradual increase to attain the overall target of the programme.
In order to improve agricultural production through use of organic fertilizer, use of bio-slurry in all plants constructed is encouraged through erection of slurry pits. All plants under the PNB-BF have a slurry pit and are also have a compost pit for organic manure.
Gabriel Taborin, the first institution to be engaged in this partnership aims at training over 300 masons and supervisors for the initial construction of biogas plants.
As part of the ABPP, all users in Burkina Faso enjoy a flat subsidy of Euro 263 to ease the construction costs of the plant.
