The finalist team from Maseno Scool wants to use human excreta to produce Biogas, which can in turn fuel the local school kitchen.


Human waste originating from the school dormitories is a big problem in the local community. Not only does the imperfect sewage system leads to a bad stench, the antagonize the wider community – but the excess waste is polluting the local streams and waterways.
