Green presents its work on UNIDO focus group meeting

JANUARY 28TH, 2016

In the end of January, Green Social Bioethanol joined the UNIDO Focus Group Meeting for Developing Partnership for Promoting Clean Cooking Fuels, which took place in the city of Dar Es Salaam, in Tanzania. The event was organized by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) with the purpose of bringing together multiple stakeholders from different background who are concerned with the development of clean fuels for cooking in Africa, especially in Tanzania.

In the event were discussed a series of issues and proposals for overcoming the challenge of cooking with polluting fuels. Amongst the items on agenda, it can be highlighted: manufacturing cookstoves, installing microdistilleries, producing bioethanol, organizing the logistics and distribution, etc. Cooking with polluting fuels is a major health issue around the world, especially in Sub-Saharam Africa where more than 80% of the population depends on solid fuels for cooking. By promoting the transition to clean fuels, UNIDO and the other partners expect not only to reduce deaths from indoor pollution but also to generate employment, empower women and preserve the natural environment. 

During the meeting, Green explained the importance of producing bioethanol from locally grown crops, such as cassava, using advanced farm-scaled technology. Accordingly, to produce ethanol locally is very important for promoting regional development and assuring that the generated revenues will stay within the country.
