It considers the history of household digesters in Latin America, including technical, environmental, social and economic aspects. Several successful experiences have been promoted during the last decade, including the creation of the Network for Biodigesters in Latin America and the Caribbean (RedBioLAC) that provides a forum to coordinate implementation and research programmes throughout the continent.
