Sustainable Clean Cooking Fuel and Jobs for people at the base of the pyramid in Uganda

Eco-fuel Africa work with local communities in Uganda to convert locally sourced biomass waste like sugarcane waste and corn waste into clean cooking fuel briquettes that people can use to cook instead of depleting forests for wood-based fuels. Their fuel briquettes burn longer, burn cleaner and are 65% cheaper than charcoal from wood. This saves people money, reduces indoor air pollution related illnesses and reduces deforestation.
