Green Bio Energy designs, produces and distributes energy solutions with the goal to fight poverty, deforestation and climate change in Uganda. The main products are the EcoBurner and Briketi. The EcoBurner is a charcoal stove for domestic use, whereas Briketi are long burning bio briquettes that are made from 100% recycled material such as organic agriculture residues and charcoal waste. They reduce indoor air pollution emissions and have 90 minutes cooking time compared to 45 minutes with traditional charcoal. In addition, they are 20% more affordable than regular charcoal.
Design without Border collaborated with Green Bio Energy in 2015 to improve the production processes. The result was a 20% increase in production capacity! Read more about the project and results here.
