Its innovation was described by the U.S. institute as ‘one of the technological solutions that improve and even save people’s lives’ and its author was the only Cuban included in the MIT Technology Review in Spanish.

The also member of the Latin American Biogas Network ensures that his work stands out in particular for the social component, beneficial for the inhabitants of four communities of this town, 350km east of Havana, especially for their habits in the management and use of energy carriers.
