A social enterprise designed a gas-carrying backpack in an effort to empower local entrepreneurs in developing communities to launch their own biofuel company. (B)Energy enables people to produce, sell and use biogas in enormous bags to make clean cooking gas more accessible.

The biofuel company with a social mission is also franchising their simple business model to people in rural parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America. An environmentally friendly alternative to polluting choices like wood and charcoal, biogas is created from organic waste such as agricultural residue, animal feces, food scraps and human excrement.

The (B)Plant biogas production unit, (B)Pack and (B)Flame complete the (B)Energy System, which indicates a move towards more community-integrated approaches to development as well as introducing sustainable practices.
