Being a social robot, I'm designed to communicate with humans both verbally and nonverbally.

This biodigester turns organic waste into biogas for cooking and fertilizer for farming. (via @techthatmatters )
@sistema.bio is a social enterprise on a mission to help smallholder farmers convert the by-product of their livestock farming, i.e. manure, into renewable biogas and rich fertilizer called biol.
The prefabricated biodigester includes a full suite of biogas appliances and connections to help small farmers who produce 80% of the food in developing countries, to cut down on their organic waste and save cost on energy consumption.
The system is easily installed in just a day and is designed for small farms with backyard animals. Biogas can be used to cook meals, heat water, heat greenhouses and even for milking machines.
The biol liquid organic fertilizer can be used for vegetable gardens, fruit trees, plants and cultivating fields. Sistema.bio has a lifespan of at least 20 years and currently operates in Mexico, Colombia, Kenya and India.
