Palestine, West Bank 2010

Building the first home scale biodigester in Palestine with the Palestinian Wildlife Society, Engineers without Borders Palestine and Brother's Engineering Company in Beit Sahour

Cultural affairs lead officer Frank Finver and Arava Institue graduate Dana Rassas brought Solar CITIES to the West Bank to do renewable energy workshops in 2010.  On the last day of Culhane's stay he built Palestine's first food waste biodigester at the Palestinian Wildlife Society Eco-home demonstration area with Imad Atrash, Amer Rabayah, Mohammed Salem and friends.  The program continues to this day with several dozen small scale biogas systems being built throughout the West Bank and Gaza.
