Fund a Sustainable, Green Coal Plant in Benin

Dec 12, 2013

Help us succeed

You helped us raise $ 225 USD so far because you understand this project will enable the development of a coal plant that will produce green renewable energy from biomass such as agricultural residues and garden waste, deforestation, desertification and the proliferation of greenhouse gas emissions.

We need you to help us install a green plant coal (first in Benin) to a sustainable low cost and abundant energy source. Biochar is created by heating biomass products such as cuts yard waste, agricultural residues, leaves, switchgrass, and even manure, at very high temperatures in an oxygen-free environment by almost a process called pyrolysis. Biochar is exceptional because it is created from sustainable resources, and because it can be used to produce energy.

Please help to achieve the objective of this project is to be funded at $ 56.300. We can do better!. We have less than three weeks to balance the budget!

Thank you in advance for us and push towards the goal.
