Transforming Agricultural Waste to Sustainable Energy
Our mission is to replace firewood-as-fuel for the industrial sector in Kenya. We produce a clean biomass energy product made from discarded sugarcane husks. Our VumaLogs (bagasse briquettes) are a superior fuel source for industrial boilers. It's time for a cleaner and greener alternative to wood fuel.
Our Product: VumaLogs
Benefits of our bagasse briquettes vs. traditional firewood
Firewood consumption is the driving force behind the rampant deforestation in Kenya and East Africa. Creating alternatives to firewood, particularly for large-scale users, is a key part of the solution. Each ton of VumaLogs is equivalent to 25 trees worth of woof fuel. We are aiming to save two million trees in Kenya by 2022.
There aren't many options for earning a viable income in rural western Kenya. Basic subsistence farming predominates. We are helping to change that by creating additive and year-round jobs with training, benefits, and a pathway for promotions. Over 50 jobs to-date have been created and we expect hundreds more in the future. We believe sustainable jobs are the heart of economic development.
REDUCING ATMOSPHERIC CARBON DIOXIDE
Based on our projections for the industrial use of VumaLogs in Kenya in just the next three years (through '22), 42,000 tons of CO2 will be absorbed by the trees saved. That's equivalent to the carbon emissions from 9,000 cars per year or an individual's carbon burden on over 11,000 commercial flights.

Are you currently burning firewood in your industrial biomass boiler? If so, let's talk. We can arrange a demonstration of our VumaLogs in your boiler, provide existing customer references, and supply an independent third-party Certificate of Analysis showing all key parameters of our briquettes.
