Promethean continues to grow their milk chilling business in India. Using thermal batteries, the tank-based system eliminates the costs associated with using diesel generators, along with GHG emissions.
Congratulations to SimGas! They took home the prize for the Innovative Technology category at the prestigious 2018 Climate & Clean Air Awards. They were recognized for their revolutionary, high-quality and affordable biogas systems, which have tremendous positive impact on climate and health.
Congratulations to SimGas! They've been chosen as a finalist for the 2018 Climate and Clean Air Award. This award recognizes exceptional contributions toward reducing short-lived climate pollutants, which contribute about 40% of the manmade heat energy being added to the planet every year.
The Biogas Milk Chiller by SimGas enables off-grid dairy farmers to store, deliver, and sell the highest possible quality and quantity of milk. Milk is kept cool overnight until it is delivered/sold the next day. This decreases milk spoilage and increases income potential for dairy farmers.
SimGas were big winners at ASME’s 2018 Innovation Showcase! They'll use their $10,000 prize to pilot their biogas milk chiller with a group of 20 Kenyan farmers. They hope to learn more about their payment model, and to further investigate the farmer to processor cooling chain.
SimGas is one of three Kenyan-based innovators to receive this year’s Africa regional ASME Innovation Showcase (ISHOW) awards. Later this year, all the winners will meet in New York City for the Global ISHOW event, where they will share more than $500,000 in awards, services and technical support.
Powering Agriculture Innovator SimGas will compete at the ASME Innovation Showcase (ISHOW) Kenya on May 10, 2018. ISHOW is a global competition for hardware-led ventures and social enterprises that focuses on the design and engineering journey of taking physical products to market.

Janet is a proud SimGas customer and sales supervisor since 2014. She tells us about how easy it is to cook on biogas. Everyone can cook with biogas!
SimGas's robust growth in Kenya is made possible, in part, by Lendahand crowdfunding. A recent campaign raised 84,400€, which will provide loans to 125 farmers living in Muranga and Meru, enabling them to acquire SimGas biogas systems. A second campaign is now underway.
A huge milestone for SimGas: In 2018 their micro-scale biogas-powered milk chillers will be widely distributed in East Africa. Small-scale off-grid milk cooling that uses a reliable and renewable energy source—biogas produced from cow manure—means less milk spoilage, and a better living for farmers.
Renewable energy companies in East Africa that provide solar kits and modern cooking stoves—like Rubagabaga Run of River Hydropower Project in Rwanda, SimGas Kenya Ltd, Eco-Charcoal Ltd and Uganda's Eco Group Ltd—are bypassing traditional financial intermediaries and turning to online crowdfunders.
