As one of the first models  ever deployed and applied in Viet Nam, community biogas  ran into difficulties in the first steps.  However, with the efforts of stakeholders, after more than 7 months of deployment, gas flame from the pig farm outside the village came to 25 first households in the village, bursting withjoy and happiness of the people as well as the project officers.

The project was designed with a 1,200 meter gas pipeline system  connected from a big scale pig farm in the commune which is nearby Hoang Mon village, with an  air vacuum system, and a safe and automatic valve system. After being installed and put into trial operation, the project has brought about positive initial results with constant gas being provided to 25 households in Hoang Mon village for free. According to biogas experts’ assessment on  potential of farm, with existing systems, it can provide biogas for approximately 100 households in Hoang Mon village in the up-coming  time.

We believe that the success of community biogas model is of great importance not only to the beneficiaries, and local community but also to organization unit  ​​in using effectively available renewable energy to contribute  to solving environmental problems,  form  a basis for the expansion in the future, and  offer livestock farms with practical solutions to better addressing their  environmental problems . Viet Nam is an agricultural country with two major industries   namelyfarming and livestock. Therefore, we can affirm that Viet Nam has great potential  in exploiting and using biogas. Taking advantage of gas from livestock waste has made significant contribution to saving a considerable expenditure for cooking, ensuring  stable gas supply in disaster. The success of this model will form a basis  for expansion in future towards sustainable development.
