Research Highlights

  1. The BiocharPlus project, which is funded by EU-ACP Cooperation -EuropeAid/133437/D/ACT/ACPTPS
  2. The main activities foreseen within the Biochar Plus project are:
    Capacity building on biochar through participatory approach, dissemination, education/training and mainstreaming               towards different target groups;
    Back up the development of local value chains based on clean stove production, fuel and biochar, investment preparation     of 2 biochar plants.
  3. The partners in this project are: Udine University (Italy): Starter (Italy); ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) (Cape Verde); ASA Initiative (Ghana); University of Lomé (Togo); CORD-SL (Sierra Leone); Jimma University (Ethiopia)
    Associated Partners: African Union; UNIDO; Cornell University (USA)
