The biogas conversion and waste water treatment facility in Lexus Multiplier Farm (LMF) is nearing completion. According to Mr. Mel David, GM for LFM, the facility should be fully operational by 2nd quarter of 2016. When fully operational the facility will be able to provide electrical power, harnessed from the waste material of the animals to produce methane gas, to power the entire complex. This will translate in big savings for LMF in terms of electricity costs. Moreover, any excess power production can be provided to neighboring communities contributing a vital role in one of INFARMCO’s values of social responsibility.
Aside from generating electrical power, the facility will also have a by-product of organic fertilizer. These fertilizers can be sold as additional income or be used in LMF’s own fruit and vegetable plots.
