Biofuels in Africa

The objective of this Competence Platform on Energy Crop and Agroforestry Systems for Arid and Semi-arid Ecosystems- Africa (COMPETE) is to stimulate bioenergy implementation in arid and semi-arid regions in Africa.

FACT, Fuels from Agriculture in Communal Technology
FACT Foundation assists partners in developing countries with know-how for the production, use and commercialisation of biofuels for local development. Biofuels can greatly enhance the energy supply in developing countries, reduce the dependence on fossil fuel, increase local farmers' income and improve quality of life.
