We are tackling the problems of pollution and deforestation by collecting otherwise discarded biomass such as sawdust and rice husk to produce high quality briquettes as a substitute for firewood. After 2 years of market research and developing the pilot facility the time has come to ramp up production and open multiple sites throughout Madagascar. Due to lack of national infrastructure it is more feasible to open smaller facilities throughout the country rather than one large central location (eg. Trucks take an average of about 10 hours to travel 350km between the two major centres of Antananarivo and Tamatave). The demand is in the thousands of tons per month which will require a minimum of 5 plants capable of producing 200 tons per month. In addition to providing firewood alternatives to industry our long term goals include developing sustainable charcoal substitutes for home and commercial use.
