GreenChar provides affordable clean fuel to institutions in Kenya.

GreenChar offers an economical solution to deforestation in Kenya by supplying clean fuel made from agricultural waste to community institutions. We distribute LongBurn briquettes, an alternative to firewood made from sustainable sugarcane waste, to schools, hotels, and industries. Our briquettes burn hotter and longer than wood fuels, thereby allowing our customers to reduce their cooking fuel consumption by 50%. They are also nearly smokeless, which reduces the risk of the cooks or workers contracting a respiratory illness or infection and also keeps kitchens clean and soot-free.
