Millennium Fellowship Project: BIDIGREEN
Bidigreen is an alternative fuel energy for domestic use that is to replace the traditional charcoal used in most Ghanaian homes. Bidigreen burn three times longer,smokeless and environmentally friendly. It is produced from crop waste residue, unlike the traditional charcoal, in which trees are felled and burnt to produce the charcoal.The felling down of these trees contributes to deforestation and burning them releases gases which cause climate change. Thus, with our innovative method, we provide the same energy without harming the environment. Since its inception in a small village, Bidigreen has seen a tremendous growth and is now a registered business operating under the name Bidigreen Ghana Limited.
