The Way Laga Project started in November of 2012, bringing 50 head of Imported Australian cattle to a palm plantation feedlot to measure reproductivity and weight gain using waste palm leaves.
Worker amenities are limited, and cow manure plentiful, so in late 2013 we decided to install a 12 cubic metre biogas digester, with 4 lights and 2 gas stoves. 2 lights and a stove were for the plantation security workers house. The other 2 lights were for the feedlot when the electricity goes out and the other stove was for our yard workers.
We commenced hole digging in January and completed construction in April. The delay was due to the hole being hand dug and encountering a lot of hard rock. Easily remedied with the hiring of a jack-hammer.
