Ireland's first community scale IBC tank based biodigester!

Burning a five inch hole into the IBC tank for a 4 inch uniseal using a 19 Euro stove pipe section.

The Solar CITIES Blue Flame tour of Ireland kicked off on Friday July 3rd 2015 with a community build of a Solar CITIES IBC biodigester in the Birr Community Growery in the historic town of Birr (Gaelic for "The Wells"; interestingly Bir also means "well" in Arabic!).

The tour was masterfully organized by Eimhin David Shortt (pictured front left with the grey hat) and takes Solar CITIES throughout the green island, bringing a truly green solution home to Solar CITIES' co-founder Culhane's ancestral land. This is a dream come true for Culhane (pictured front right in red)  and his clan.

Event date:  Friday, 3 July, 2015
