The Indonesia Domestic Biogas Program (IDBP) or known as BIRU Program is a multi-stakeholder program initiated by HIVOS in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources (MEMR) in 2009 and then implemented by the Yayasan Rumah Energi (YRE)  in 2012. The BIRU program is a program that aims to disseminate renewable energy programs through the use of biogas as a clean energy source for cooking and the use of bio-slurry (biogas waste) as a natural fertilizer.

WASTE PROCESS BECOMES A BLESSING

Biogas is a renewable technology that processes livestock and human manure and other organic materials into clean energy for everyday cooking. With the motto “Processing Waste into Blessings”, biogas provides a solution to minimize organic waste from home. Biogas can also be the right investment for households because besides reducing the production of livestock and household waste and saving expenses, it can also reduce the health risks that come from using firewood.

This partnership cooperation is divided into two sectors: implementation (construction and maintenance carried out by construction partners known as CPO) and financing based on a blended finance scheme.
