What we do
The Green Elephant (TGE) manufactures biomass briquettes in Uganda as a replacement cooking and heating fuel for firewood and charcoal. The Green Elephant is expanding the production to pellets made from compressed high energy grass from its own plantation in Uganda.
Additionally, livestock feed blocks is manufactured using the energy grass from The Green Elephant’s plantation. The feed blocks are a big benefit and improvement for the farmers and their cattle. Manufacturing and selling high quality livestock feed will improve milk production per animal which has significant benefits for farmers livelihoods.
The Green Elephant’s activities are an investment in the development of an environmentally responsible, sustainable and economical biomass industry in Uganda, Africa.
