The main national secondary schools across the country will soon benefit from an Israeli-designed home biogas system.
This new system is expected to significantly reduce the school costs in purchasing gas for cooking.
The Israeli Consul in Solomon Islands. Leliana Firisua, yesterday handed over the home gas system to James Kana, managing director of Ueniusuunu Agribusiness Group, who will be implementing the project with the schools.
Schools to benefit under the project fall under the Solomon Islands Christian Association (SICA).

“The first system of Home Biogas 4.0 will be implemented at the Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) operated Betikama Adventist College,” Mr.Firisua said.
He said from Betikama, the implementation team will move to Selwyn College (Anglican Church of Melanesia), St Joseph’s Tenaru (Catholic), Su’u National Secondary School (South Seas Evangelical Church) and then onto to Goldie College in Western Province, run by the Wesley United Church in Solomon Islands.
Mr.Firisua said Israeli designed the biogas system to help Pacific Islands countries, including Solomon Islands, to fight the impacts of climate change.
Mr.Kana said his Ueniusuúnu Agribusiness Group (UAG) is a rural based initiative that operates agribusiness from rural village communities to local and overseas market through a farmer membership group in Small Malaita.

Mr.Kana added that all identified Israeli technologies potential for Solomon Islands are planned for his company, who will be heading the implementation of the clean green technology of the home biogas systems from this year.
