SimGas Biogas Milk Chiller / Off Grid Cooling Solution, Climate Change

In emerging dairy sectors worldwide, raw milk cannot be cooled at dairy farms due to lack of access to (unreliable) electricity. SimGas has developed a first of its kind biogas-powered milk chilling enabling off-grid dairy farmers to store, deliver and sell the highest possible quantity of milk.
Every day, dairy farmers put cow manure in their biogas digesters to generate biogas. Every evening, dairy farmers put their churn with fresh milk into the chiller, which cools it down fast. It is kept cool until the next morning when it is delivered and sold to the dairy cooperative. Farmers earn more income & dairy cooperatives collect more milk.
