dc.descriptionThe Kenya Planters Cooperative Union (KPCU), an organisation of coffee growers, has set up a factory which is now producing 200 tonnes of charcoal a month from 400 tonnes of coffee husks. The technique might result in saving trees from being used as fuelwood. Kenyans use about 21 million tonnes of woodfuel a year, which represents hundreds of thousands of trees. It takes about nine tonnes of wood to produce a tonne of ordinary charcoal whereas the KPCU scheme produces one tonne of charcoal from two tonnes of husks.
