SCALING UP SUSTAINABLE CHARCOAL BRIQUETTE PRODUCTION IN TANZANIA

The objective of the project is to enable a fuel switch from unsustainable charcoal to sustainable non-wood charcoal in households. The project aims to expand the supply of non-wood charcoal and thereby make it a real market alternative to non-sustainable charcoal.  The project assists CBEs producing non-wood charcoal briquettes from agricultural waste (dry biomass) to enhance their production capacities.  Non-wood charcoal briquette quality improvement, charcoal producer training and technical advisory on further technology development and assessment of financial mechanisms are the main elements of the project.
