Sustainable fuel from SALEM-Uganda
At SALEM, a resource-conserving approach in terms of the environment is particularly important to us. In recent decades, forests in Africa have often been cut down to use the wood as building material or for cooking.
With our nursery we fight against it and have already achieved many things. Our SALEM village in Uganda and the neighbouring communities benefit from the tens of thousands of trees we have already planted.
Another project for the sustainable use of fuel is the production of briquettes made of organic material such as leaves or rice husks. These burn longer than coal and protect nature. Our employees have just started the production and it is planned to sell the briquettes soon at subsidized prices.
