Sistema Biobolsa: Addressing Challenges of Climate Change, Sustainable Agriculture And Waste Management In Mexico
Sistema Biobolsa addressed several challenges that small and marginal farmers in Mexico and across the world faced – low yielding land due to excessive use of chemical fertilizers, lack of organic fertilizers, unviable waste disposal methods, and limited access to energy. Sistema Biobolsa converted organic waste into organic fertilizer and renewable energy. Its impact was manifold. With an investment of US$ 600, a farmer with two cows could save upto US$ 40 per month in the cost of fuel and fertilizers. The biogas produced was environmentally friendly, reduced methane emissions, resulted in better waste management, reduced deforestation, protected the soil, and also improved the quality of life of the farmers. To cater to the needs of different farmers, the bio-digesters were available in several sizes and could be installed within a few hours. After the first month, the farmers could start using the system. The company provided loans to farmers to install the system, and also extended technical support to them in using it. Eaton expanded into Kenya, Colombia, Nicaragua, and India, but, there were still many issues that he needed to address. He had to improve distribution to reach more than 4 million small farmers in Mexico. Can a small venture in Mexico be scaled up to address these huge global problems?
