Green Charcoal Uganda
Green Charcoal uses discarded palm kernels to extract the true value of an otherwise wasted resource. Our principal product comes from milling the husks themselves where we create a more efficient and heat-radiating briquette. We also source other abundant otherwise discarded agricultural waste like coffee husks, maize (Corn) cob and rice husks to make our briquette. The remaining nuts are milled to get cold pressed vegetable fats and palm kernel cake. We solve many problems with our circular economy approach to business, but our main focus is on solving the problem of fuel scarcity for local populations.
