EOL Construction training on the MODIFIED KENBIM BIO-DIGESTER


As part of ABPP intervention in addressing affordability, the Modified Kenbim Design was born and rolled out in 2016. Since then there has been an increased adoption rate which has buttressed competitiveness of the fixed dome in a rapidly changing bio-digester technology’s landscape. This coupled with the growth in the sector has led to more players demanding for training and capacity building to increase their competitive edge.
To boost market roll-out and product reputation and quality, continuous training and refresher is important. The training will be executed by ToT (Biogas technician) under the supervision of the Quality Manager, KBP.
