Affordable clean charcoal from organic biomass
Bio-watt Botswana generates revenue from the sales of clean biomass charcoal that is made from organic material such as cow dung and other organic waste material. The raw material is then carbonised in a furnace equipped with smoke capture technology.
Raw materials are collected by a company van from different areas and delivered to the factory where they are dried and put into the carbonised machine. The finished charcoal is then packaged and distributed to the market.
Lesoso Multipurpose is a community-based cooperative which has partnered with Bio-watt Botswana, for marketing and distributing the products in rural areas.
Castrum engineers (PTY) LTD is an engineering firm in Botswana that assists Bio-watt with technical and skills development, as well as contribute technical assistance and machinery servicing.
The SEED Climate Adaptation Awards 2021 in Botswana, Malawi, and Zambia are sponsored by the Government of Flanders.
