Kunye - Renewable Energy System

Kunye is a renewable energy system designed for informal settlements in the Western Cape. Using SPSS tools - a combination of Biomimicry and Lenses - a sustainable system and product was created. The system makes use of human and organic waste to generate biogas that can be used as a harmless fuel in permanent homes. This gas is created by an anaerobic process that takes place within a methane digester, which is located below the local toilet units. Residents can collect the gas from the local Kunye shop and alternatively use it for cooking. The system's success depends on the participation of the community, and when applied correctly can solve social, economic and environmental issues concerning sanitation, shack fires and pollution.
