|Project Description||Eco Fuels Kenya produces energy and agricultural products through a 100% organic and no-waste manufacturing process based entirely on the croton nut. The company’s mission is to add value to East Africa’s environment and economy by sustainably processing indigenous, renewable resources into value-added products. The croton nut for example, grows across 8 African countries and has no other productive, commercial or edible use. EFK sources the croton nut from rural populations at the base of the pyramid, and processes the nut into croton nut oil, briquettes for heating and poultry feed.
