Project

A Charcoal Production and Storage Plant in Outjo, Kunene Region, Namibia

The purpose of the project is to obtain an environmental clearance certificate for the operation of the biomass processing (using central-retort carbonisation technology) and storage plant in Outjo, Kunene Region.

ECC’s Role

Sustainable charcoal production in Namibia presents strategies to combat bush encroachment, supplement farming income, and contribute to local employment creation. Alfacharcoal Namibia (Pty) Ltd operates an existing plant and will continue sourcing biomass from surrounding farmland and producing charcoal by means of carbonization before transporting the charcoal to a processing plant (Unifoods), approximately 7 kilometres outside Outjo. Alfacharcoal will continue to increase its current revenue stream and sustain its direct employment structure.
