The business project
Starting from a current business in design & placement of biogas installation, the Trautbuck team now wants to address another urgent need: reducing deforestation by supporting the shift from cooking over wood or charcoal to cooking on briquettes made from organic waste streams. Trautbuck has designed a versatile and mobile briquette machine with a high production capacity. The company aims to deliver devices to new settlements and refugee camps, where organic waste streams are available. The NGO’s supporting and organizing life in the refugee settlements are an important partner in Trautbuck’s road to market for the briquette making devices.
Why OVO believes in this project
The interest in renewable energy sources in Uganda has been particularly compelled by the increasing magnitude of waste generation and concentrations of confined animal feeding operations in the (pre-) urban areas.
