Rebuilding Haiti must start from the ground up, with agricultural education
Haiti Reconstruction International's main interest is conserving resources while creating sustainable businesses to produce more food and a healthy environment.
The largest improvement in Haiti's history toward new technolgy started only in 2006 when Digical started service that the masses could afford now nearly 3 million Haitians are using cell phones. Digicel is the now the largest business in Haiti and also pays the most taxes supporting the government.
Newest technologies put into Haiti with good business plans; can leap-frog Haiti skipping nearly a century of outdated or sometimes wasteful technology by using solar, alternative power and renewable energy throughout Haiti eliminating need of high power lines.
Solar and wind power works great for lighting and electronics. Batteries and converters are the most expensive investments in solar power; using DC pumps that only run while the sun shines is the best use for pumping water.
Heavier demands require more power such as heavy machinery and constant refrigeration. This is why we have to make smaller scale electrification plants for rural villages. The best renewable source for electrifying plants is biomass.
Haiti Reconstruction International believes vetiver grass is needed on every mountain side to stop erosion and the only way to get this planted is if we can make it profitable so the people will grow it in a business manner.
Vetiver grass will create millions of tons of biomass that can be harvested 2 to 3 times per year. These hedgerows will still bring back the soil by saving all the debris and creating terraces from leaves and waste from above, without the hedgerows there will be no soil.
Using human and animal manure along with vetiver grass silage digested is another way to cheaply provide bio-gas needed for more powerful motors needed to manufacture pellets, machinery and larger deep wells on mountains.
Biogas extraction offers several benefits:
