Improved Charcoal Processing

The project is planning introduce an improved charcoal production plant in Tanzania. The objective is to produce charcoal in a more efficient and more environmentally sustainable way than the traditional method. The project will aim to reduce the unsustainable extraction of biomass from indigenous forests for charcoal production and the GHG emissions that result from it. Instead of using biomass from indigenous forests, the project will use biomass residues from GRAS’ sustainably grown forests as a raw material.
