Briquettes for cooking in Africa
C.F. Nielsen has engineered and delivered a briquetting plant in Ghana, which includes down-sizing, drying and a BP4000 briquetting plant. The plant will have a capacity of approx. 700 kg per hour.
The objective of the project is to use wood- and agricultural residues to produce sustainable briquettes to replace non sustainable wood fuel and charcoal. The project will support low income groups by providing them an access to a sustainable and economically feasible source of fuel. Our local partner CookClean produces efficient cooking stoves and the fuel will be sold in combination with the stoves.
The project has been supported by a grant from the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO).
The Village Concept can also be extended by a carbonization module, which enables briquettes to be carbonized.
