- Target Location Production: Mafinga, Iringa
Mkaa Endelevu is the largest sustainable produce of charcoal in Tanzania. We convert commercial forestry waste from the Mufindi/Sao Hill plantations into sustainable high quality charcoal briquettes for domestic consumption. We employ over 30 people, produce 10 tons a day and are trying to scale our project to 2000 tons a month over the next 18 months.
Current deforestation and land degradation associated wit the illegal charcoal trade in Tanzania is having devastating effects on the country. If sustainable alternatives are not enforced, forest cover will diminish over the coming years effecting rainfall, biodiversity and risking the lives and economy of the country.
