Afrisol Energy stood out in the competition for its capacity to combine business growth and long-term sustainability through technological innovation. By converting wasted manure into biogas and fodder, the innovative bio-digester technology represents an effective solution that both creates value and addresses climate change issues. Some of the key advantages of the technology are:
- it provides farmers with refined, non-chemical fertilizer;
- it produces clean and cheaper energy;
- it significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions, and
- it limits deforestation by reducing firewood use.
Created in 2010 by Amos Nguru as a solution for local farmers, Afrisol Energy is now targeting also schools and institutions. The ultimate goal is to re-design the entire energy chain in order to provide a growing number of communities with a cheaper and more sustainable source of energy.
Thanks to the grant received and the continuous support of the KCIC through services and networking opportunities, Mr. Nguru’s dream and company slogan “Keep our region green” is now a step closer to becoming reality.
