Supporting communities by providing a clean, affordable and renewable energy supply from waste
In rural Kenya, the daily routine of families often revolves around cooking meals over traditional stoves fuelled by wood and charcoal. The delicious aroma of food fills the air, but lurking beneath it is a silent danger. The thick smoke that is released when the wood or charcoal are burned not only causes respiratory problems, for women and children, but also contributes to climate change, releasing greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. While gathering or buying the fuel takes significant time and money from Kenyan households. Managing animal manure also poses environmental challenges, as Kenyan farmers lack systems to manage manure from their animals, it is often left untreated and releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas, into the atmosphere.
