we sell a versatile green kiln that can produce the heat and biochar for greenhouses by using the biomasse waste, making also a good charcoal and regreen the artisanal production of charcoal in morocco.
we developpe green network of biochar producers in the african francophone countries, biochar is low cost amendment with 50% retention of nutrients and water, with good impact in zero hunger.
During the winter farmers safer from low temperature in the greenhouses the big farmers used the gas to up temperature for a good harvest (10 C), for small farmers they harvest the tomatoes and sweet peppers 4 times a month instead of harvest 9 times during the spring.
In addition during winter, 160 000t of biomass waste (tomatoes and papers) is burned every year with 15 288 t of CO2 emission. This problem come from that big farmers don’t compost the waste due to twine plastic and bacteria in biomass. Secondly over than 500 small farmers with les 10 hectare of greenhouses don’t have landfill.
The production of the charcoal in morocco is artisanal charcoal producer use the traditional carbonization that generates a lot co2 and less production of charcoal (25%outcome).
We sell for famers green kiln of that use the waste of waste (tomato and sweet peppers) to heat the greenhouses and produce the biochar as soil amendment, the kiln work by passive heating it used a slow pyrolysis with less energy consumption.
For the charcoal producer we sell mobile kiln that use the pyrolysis system to char the wood with 35% to 40% of output, it help the coalman to reduce time of the production with good quality and clean charcoal from sand and stones, with less need of workers.
In 2012 the area of greenhouses in the Souss Massa region is 8080 hectares. And according to the Ministry of Agriculture the evolution of Vegetable production will move from 1 340 000 tones in 2013 to 1 640 000 tones in 2020 in this region. http://www.agriculture.gov.ma/pages/regions/region-souss-massa-daraa.
For the charcoal production market, in the northern forest areas there are over 100 charcoals cooperatives who work in the production of charcoal under the control of the High Commission for Water and Forests and the fight against desertification, and this administration has adopted a wood-energy strategy to reduce the energy deficit by150,000 tons in 2024.https://www.lavieeco.com/news/economie/strategie-bois-energie-60-mdh-pour-lutter-contre-la-desertification.html
Key Value Proposition for Partners
We are startup the pyrolysis is our core business, we sell pyrolysis kiln for farmer that can produce good biochar with the use of the excess heat in the greenhouses heating during the winter. We our first early adopter that confirm to use the biochar test and we are working on the demotion and consumption of kiln for 1 hectare of greenhouses.
With the cooperation with High Commission for Water and Forests and the fight against desertification, we organized (01to 05/03/2018) a workshop about green charcoal production, we receive 7 Africans producers of biochar and 7 charcoal cooperatives in our manufacturing biochar workshop, that was opportunity to exchange the problem that we face as biochar producers and training the charcoal cooperative on how to produce charcoal.
Link of workshop videoSo we developed a strategic partnership with the High Commission for Water and Forests because our value proposition is perfectly adapted with the forest management strategy, we have network with biochar producer from 7 African countries, and we have 7 charcoal cooperatives in the north as potential customers of our charcoal kiln retort.
we are looking for industrial partner as support to develop to develop a green charcoal sector in Morocco and francophone African countries
Ideal Partner Profile
We as an African biochar start up all the material that we use is imported from china and we didn't find the industrial partner that can manufacture our material of production. So we are looking for industrial partner from Europe (Spain) or the USA, who can supply the manufacture of good press grinder and pyrolysis furnaces.
