Film Release

Biogas Project

The Arava Institute is pleased to announce the release of the film The Arava Institute Biogas Project. In the Middle East, many rural communities suffer from a lack of municipal services such as waste management and energy provision. Without access to such services, off-grid communities struggle to find a sustainable energy source and to properly dispose of their animal waste. The Arava Institute for Environmental Studies is using biogas technology to help address these needs in underserved communities in Israel’s Bedouin community, Palestine, and Jordan. Watch the full video here.
