Objectives To sensitize and train women and girls of the importance of using alternative and environmentally-friendly sources of energy (biomass briquettes, solar energy and biogas) and energy saving solutions such as fuel-efficient cook stoves;

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

BN energy’s main product will be the briquette, an organic charcoal briquette that will be made out of charcoal dust, organic waste and agricultural residue. It is different from charcoal and firewood in a number of ways: • High quality which makes it burn longer than most lump charcoal. • Smoke free • Eco friendly • No soot Beneficiaries and Impact BN bio energy will promote Environment management livelihood improvement programs for sustainable development through working with development partners and government institutions.
