A long time ago, before Sistema.bio even formally started, we saw a lot of problems in the way this world was running. And when we first started our adventure, in an Influenza-ridden Mexico, we found a passion for finding solutions. It is thanks to that passion that we continue to cross milestones even in difficult times. Yet, as we have

By Elena Coll Small farmers are at the center of what we do. Since day 1, Sistema.bio has established a collaboration scheme with our users that allows us to learn from them, how they work and what they need to get the most out of their biodigesters and their farms. The arrival of COVID-19 has reminded us of the importance
Sistema.bio started off with the whole world in mind. While we installed the first biodigesters in Mexico, we were already dreaming of our future and thinking of ways to escalate our impact around the globe. And day by day that dream becomes more of a reality. Now we have offices in Mexico, Kenya, India and Colombia, and our biogas systems
By Elena Coll Over the past few months, the global reality has changed. The pandemic has turned lives, hospitals, societies and economies upside down. As a company that works directly with farmers and their families, it is important for us to have a clear picture of how the pandemic and its consequential financial crisis are affecting the thousands of people
There are around 570 million smallholder and family farms in the world, and they are home to over 2 billion people. These are the people we work for. It is important for us to understand their realities, their needs, and their resources. For ten years, Sistema.bio has joined hands with these farmers, with the clear vision of eradicating world hunger
By Elena Coll The world needs diversity. Each and every single organism on this earth serves a purpose, and all lives depend on one another. Bees depend on flowers, and flowers depend on bees. Worms depend on soil, and soil depends on worms. We depend on this Earth, and right now the Earth depends on a shift in human action.
At Sistema.bio, we believe and know that biogas has the potential to improve lives and communities on several levels -better health, sustainable production, waste management, economic reactivation, healthier farms. We continually look for new partnerships, new territories, new families and new projects. We want sustainable solutions and clean technologies to be the norm, not the exception. We believe children are
By Elena Coll and Quirin Walter We have recently started a project for organic waste management in the city of Manila, Philippines. We have installed a demo biodigester in a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) on the outskirts of the city, a site built by the Philippines Government for sorting and storing recyclable waste that comes out of the city. We
A little over two years ago, a young Dutch startup approached us with a proposition: Let us source your debt via an online crowd hungry for social and economic returns. What’s more, it will be at a better rate than you’ll get almost anywhere else. Needless to say, we were intrigued. We quickly learned about the triple-win they were after.
This pandemic has affected each of us in a different way. And although rural areas show lower rates of contagion than large cities, the economic impact can be felt everywhere. Faced with calls to stop our activities and stay home, many people have managed to halt our work. But farmers continue reminding us who they work for: “We live off
