What is your position in your company or organisation?
What does your company of organisation do?
We specialize in oil extraction from bio-waste streams. I am currently researching the feasibility of a waste-to-fuel project in Tanzania to be based on oil extraction from livestock processing waste. This model, currently in operation in Toccoa GA, is producing organic composte and oil for renewable fuel from poultry sludge in a zero waste system. (See 2 min video about it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-eGtpgeeUrM)
Our processors handle oil extraction from any type of protein processing waste, as well as other oily waste streams.
In which African countries does your company or organisation operate?
Agritec has a rep for Sub-Sahara, and Tanzania is an area of special interest to myself. I am seeking contacts within the sustainability community and the livestock sector to help me ascertain the best spot for a pilot project in Tanzania to produce fuel and compost from the abattoir waste (offal, watery sludges) or other suitable oily bio-waste streams.
