Description

The project objective is to reduce virtual water and GHG emissions within the tea industry in Kenya through a combination of using renewable energy sources and energy saving measures, including replacing wood fuel in tea processing with solar concentrators.

The main objective of the project is to reduce the use of Eucalyptus in tea production hence reduce on virtual water and greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions within...

Objective

The project's long-term ambition is to establish energy plans for tea factories, including energy audits, proposals for energy-efficient investments, pursue favorable financing, increase profitability, improve livelihoods of the small-holder farmers and prepare for a WWF green factory certification program.
