Sistema Biobolsa and the Circular Economy in Kenya

2017 Fuller Challenge Finalist Sistema Biobolsa is contributing to the circular economy for farmers in developing countries around the world. Recent coverage highlighted a success story in Kenya. Sistema Biobolsa produces and distributes affordable, state-of-the-art biodigesters that convert farm and household waste into resources. In Kenyan farmer Kimani’s case, the Sistema Biobolsa biodigester closes the loop of his production cycle, and his award-winning coffee beans become a localized case study on the circular economy. Check out this recent account of how an elegantly simple technological intervention can help one farmer transform his production system.
