Clean Energy Briquettes in Rural Morocco

BENEFITING: High Atlas Foundation

THE STORY:

This project will produce briquette machines to be used in rural villages in Morocco. A briquette is a no-waste, clean burning alternative to coal or wood. Biowaste, such as nut shells, fallen leaves, and other organic materials are compressed into briquettes using a wooden press.

Transitioning rural Moroccan villages from dependence on wood burning to use and production of biofuel briquettes 1) relieves overexploitation of local forests and reduces carbon emissions; 2) repurposes agricultural wastes that are normally unused, creating a "no-waste" community; 3) increases children's school attendance, especially girls, since they no longer need to fetch firewood for fuel; 4) generates income to alleviate rural poverty by selling briquettes as fuel to local businesses
