Development of energy efficiency and renewable energies
Auto-DÃ©veloppement Afrique (ADA)?
The purpose of this project is to market a high-performance biofuel, suitable for home cooking, produced from charcoal dust, by optimising the pilot production unit that the AMIZERO Association has been developing since 2007 on the Nzove site (Kigali). A prototype chain has been set up thanks to funding from the European Commission. The technique developed by BIOTERRE (CRA-W) has proved to be extremely efficient as far as quality is concerned, a basic guarantee of the market. The plant produces and sells 10 tonnes every month, but the break-even point has been fixed at 18 tonnes per month. The aim of this action is to strengthen the association's marketing and commercialisation strategies in order to achieve this break-even point.
