May 25, 2022Events and Activities
CGCC and Canadia Bank, one of CGCC’s Participated Financial Institutions (PFIs), with the coordination from the Biogas Technology and Information Center (BTIC), conducted the field visit on 24 May 2022, to a farm raising fattening pigs that has a potential of getting loans guaranteed by CGCC in Samaki Mean Chey district, Kampong Chhnang Province.
This pig farm has been using lagoon digesters for biogas production under the “Reduction of Greenhouse gas emission through Promotion of Commercial Biogas Plants”, which has been implemented by BTIC and supported by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
In January 2022, CGCC entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the BTIC which was jointly established by the Royal University of Agriculture (RUA) and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). Therefore, the farm visit indeed brought the opportunity for CGCC and partners to get more understanding of the importance of having more support to enable the access to financial resources for commercial biogas technology investment for fostering the adoption and implementation of commercial biogas technologies in the livestock sector and agro-processing industry which it will provide the great potential for the sectors in harnessing wastes to energy and in complying with bio-security system, sanitation and environment safeguards (such as preventing odor and water pollution).
