70-80 per cent of the population in rural East Africa have no access to electricity and no means to buy fodder or fertilizer – stunting the development of efficient and sustainable farming.
The idea behind circular farming is to develop a system where biomass production (planting new types of rapidly growing trees) is combined with production of animal fodder and fertilizer (nitrogen) collection.
The project includes developing suitable boilers that can produce electricity to run irrigation systems, schools and smaller companies.
The circular farming project could potentially have a large impact, addressing both energy, farming and food issues in rural East Africa.
This project is supported by funding from the PIVØ-programme. Read more…
