The use of biogas permits poor households to cook on a gas stove, save conventional fuels, and produce fertilizer at the same time. Beyond the household level, atmosfair also promotes the generation of renewable energy from biomass waste, which often constitutes an unused energy source in developing countries. Here, too, atmosfair meets environmental standards; for example, atmosfair does not support any projects in which energy crops that could compete with food production are raised.
