Small scale biofuel production
New generation of biofuel reduces health problems
The most common fuel used for cooking in Africa is wood and coal. The use of this type of fuel leads to ill health caused by inhalation of the heavy smoke – a condition that primarily affects women and children.
Based on an inexpensive fermentation technology, the company Scale Biofuel has developed a solution for the production of second-generation biofuels that can provide a viable alternative to existing solutions.
With support from Access2innovation, the company is now also developing the solutions as well as a business case in Uganda – in close collaboration with researchers and local institutions in the private sector.
In March 2015, Scale BioFuel and partners were awarded funding from the Nordic Climate Fund with the aim of deepening the introduction of a cheap and scalable technology that enables the production of bioethanol at a competitive price.
