  • Made in Germany | Palm Oil -- energy, not emissions

    Palm oil is one of the world's most widely produced vegetable oils. Its production leaves behind huge amounts of wastewater and plant refuse. That leads to emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane - corresponding to the energy yield of 750 millions liters of diesel fuel. The Federal Agricultural Research Centre in Germany has joined forces with an engineering firm in Bremen and the Indonesian Oil Palm Research Institute to develop what is called "zero-waste" technology. They turn part of the plant waste into compost. The rest is used for environmentally benign energy production. Of some 500 palm oil mills in Malaysia and Indonesia, nine have been equipped with the new technology. More facilities are under construction or in the planning stages. Report by: Hagen Tober

  • Sierra Leone Food Security

    One of the biggest challenges that farmers in Africa face is finding somewhere to sell their products -- somewhere reliable where they'll get a fair price. In Sierra Leone, the problem is particularly acute. High transport costs and poor infrastructure mean farmers have to sell their goods locally -- and there's no guarantee that they'll find buyers at local markets. The root vegetable cassava is a staple for many families in West Africa and is grown throughout the region. A new UNIDO project is aiming to give farmers a guaranteed place to sell their cassava produce. But it doesn't stop there. It's also looking for ways to add value to the product locally so that it can attract a higher price elsewhere -- and create more wealth for the communities that grow it.

According to Njai his stove has many advantages such as the reduction of deforestation, faster cooking and less smoke production. Although many companies has copied his idea, the stove is a big success. News about Africa is very often filled with stereotyped images of famine, war and disease.

After making strides to rebuild its fragile economy, it was devastated again by Ebola until it was finally declared Ebola free in March 2016 . Recently a food scandal broke out in the capital of Freetown, that was both heartbreaking and scandalous. Contaminated chicken was imported into Sierre Leone by a trader. The countries health services rendered the chicken unfit for human consumption and under the orders of government, the carcasses where buried on a landfill site. Thousands of people stormed the dump site and poor people dug the chicken up that had been buried in human, garbage and industrial waste. Together with our partner, Masada Waste Management, The Waste Transformers are transforming the waste of Freetown into much needed green energy, water and organic fertilizer. The fertilizer will improve the countries chances of growing their own food & feeding their own poulty, thereby educing their exposure to rogue traders. Turn waste into a force of positive change.
