Promoting production and use of biomass briquettes to counter the over-exploitation of forests
SOS Energie aims to establish a production and fabrication process of biomass briquettes and improved stoves to counter the overexploitation of forests and the massive use of charcoal and firewood. The initiative also includes training of households and craftsmen to use this environment-friendly energy source. The partnership combines the sustainable management of biomass waste and production of biomass briquettes, the use of energy efficient equipment and the education and awareness creation of the rural population to promote this renewable energy source. The model of SOS Energie is based on a decentralized strategy allowing rural communities to be integrated into the newly created market.
