Potter's Collective in Lori, Haiti

Pottery drying prior to being fired, Lori, Haiti

One of the demonstration projects we want to do in Haiti is with a potter’s collective in Lori, a village near Cap Haitien. The idea is to install a biodigester to process human waste; the biogas generated would be used to fuel a small kiln.

The village of Lori is also one of the sites under consideration for a municipal-scale waste treatment facility (more details on that one shortly). If the Lori site is chosen, the potters would have access to biogas to fire their large central kiln.
