Institutions, factories and cottage industries that are currently using firewood for their energy needs are our primary market. In total, these businesses consume about 4 million tons of firewood per year,
OUR PRODUCT – LONGBURN:
Our flagship product, LongBurn, is a biomass fuel briquette made from discarded sugarcane husks. It is lower cost, higher energy, and longer lasting than conventional charcoal and firewood.
How It Is Made. We collect the ‘waste’ husks from one of the largest sugarcane processing factories in western Kenya. The husks are next dried in two-ton industrial dyer to reduce the moisture content below 10%. A high-pressure compaction machine is then used to produce the final LongBurn logs.
LONGBURN vs FIREWOOD
IMPACT: Every ton of LongBurn used saves about 25 trees, helping significantly curb the deforestation of Kenya.
