Awamu Biomass Energy Ltd.
Manufactures and distributes micro-gasifier stoves which uses renewable energy from dry organic biomass.
Awamu Biomass Energy Ltd. designs, manufactures and sells highly efﬁcient cookstoves that turn dry biomass fuel into charcoal through pyrolysis technology. The innovative cookstoves consume less fuel, reduce deforestation and make use of agricultural biomass, which improves waste management in the area. The enterprise sensitises community members to the impact of climate change. Through training it encourages customers to use biomass instead of charcoal for cooking, which reduces indoor air pollution and carbon monoxide emissions.
Centre for Research in Energy and Energy Conservation (CREEC) provides the enterprise with technical support on testing and improving the stoves.
Biomass Energy Efﬁcient Technologies Association (BEETA) promotes the use of improved stoves and other advanced biomass energy technologies.
The Giving Hope Foundation (GHF) creates awareness about the improved cookstoves and shares working space for the training sessions.
The 2013 SEED Low Carbon Awards are supported by the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
