The Process

Stage One

Through partnerships with waste collectors such as KAD Agencies, collected municipal waste is sorted and dried. Bio-waste such as food peelings is used to make briquettes while non-biodegradable waste such as polythene is recycled into crafts.

Stage Two

Besides municipal waste, we use agro waste such as maize cobs as a raw material too.

The waste is carbonized using our large-scale carbonizers and turned into char. The char is crushed and ready to move on to the next stage.

Stage Three

The crushed char is mixed with a binder such as molasses or cassava flour. It’s then moulded into a cylindrical form with an extruder and taken to the solar dryer where it’s left to dry for 3-4 days.

Stage Four

The dry briquettes are weighed, packed and branded in paper bags and sucks. Plastic crates are used for large-scale deliveries to institutions such as schools and factories.
