Coopérative Sahel Vert
Promoting clean energy and organic fertiliser by installing biodigesters
In the Sahel region, the co-operative Sahel Vert is the first enterprise to construct cost-effective and efficient biodigesters that produce biogas and organic fertiliser from human and animal excrement. The enterprise offers training on how to correctly use the facilities and after-sales and maintenance services to enhance customer retention and satisfaction.
This holistic approach is realised by teams of trained and specialised masons. For both raising awareness and marketing, the enterprise relies on its local sale teams to highlight the advantages of its technology.
Coopérative Sahel Vert promotes the construction of biodigesters and offers after-sales services and maintenance.
OCADES Caritas, a local NGO, offers technical, organisational and financial support facilitating the implementation of biogas facilities.
Programme National de Biodigesteurs au Burkina Faso partly finances the construction of biodigesters, supports marketing activities and aids with financial, technical and administrative management.
2017 SAG-SEED Awards is supported by the SWITCH-Africa Green project, which is implemented by UNEP with the assistance of the European Union.
