Millennium Fellowship Project: Fuel The World
Fuel Uganda project deals with making briquettes from biodegradable home waste products, this aims at reducing on the level of cutting out trees in Ugandan for charcoal. These briquettes could be sold for money and act as a source of income for the jobless, on the other hand it help to reduce on the amount of wastes in homes. The biodegradable wastes we use are mainly Banana pills and maize combs, these are burnt in the incinerator to ash, porridge is made from maize flour and it's used to compact the ash together to make the dough, this is then cut into different shapes to form briquettes, these briquettes can be done on a very small scale at the house hold level so even mothers in homes can do it and use them for cooking or sell off to earn money. We thought of this as a way to reduce on the tress cut down for charcoal in Uganda. So we first learnt how to make briquettes ourselves and our main task was teaching people how to do it at household level, we move into villages teaching people how to do it, how to turn their wastes into something profitable
