Filming through African Intellect


South Africa’s masses have felt the onslaught of war (knowingly or not) the ripples have reached them. Does this make humans warlike by nature? No. History is full of war.

Just like Africa’s full of images of starving children, with their skeletons as front page in foreign media. As lone civilians, it is not believed that we can take on an ideal, your right we cannot. But we can debate a government who has lost theirs.

Hi Chanelle,

Thank you for comment on my video " Vertical Wind Turbines"

Have a nice day

We seek to illustrate a ten year Centre of Excellence (COE) driven, integrated agriculture to Industry bioenergy project for the Kilimanjaro Region of Tanzania. (Two-Three years to set up and establish first harvest values + ten years of systematic extension and management of complete value chains) for approval by the Tanzania Investment Promotion Centre.

The prime areas of activity will be:

COE- at Lake Chala, with indication that this will evolve to be Univeristy Kilimanjaro East African Sustainable Bioenergy Centre; (includes + 200Ha's of Land).
CHP-Waste to energy and Biomass to Energy Arusha town (+160,000pop) and Moshi Town (+250,000pop).
City Sludge Collection and Processing Centres- Arusha and Moshi.
KIA Biorefinery- Kilimanjaro International Airport. To include CHP-Pyrolysis-MixAlco-Bio Jet Fuel and related value added liquid fuels and lubricants plus other commodity production.

We are currently assessing the requirements that will be essential for the professional agricultural extension of Jatropha Curcas Linn at specific rain fed suitable locations (non-food/non pasture or Miombo woodland/forest land locations). Setting a target of 30,000 Ha's of extension per annum.

(NB: While using Jatropha as our benchmark plant species we are aware of alternative species and waste from current (Sugar, Coffee, General) agriculture for biomass)

We have set a target of $4000 USD per Ha of extension and support; inclusive of Government of Tanzania led land assessments, allocations and community collaborations; placing a premium upon ensuring that correct land areas are identified and allocated to community members under special land title agreements for the cultivation JCL and/or other Biomass/Oil Seed energy marginal land crops with the support of the COE extension professionals, workers and equipment.

The ideology will incorporate a regional calendar of activities to include plant protection and nutrient delivery, harvest collection and transport for processing. Our model will target to harvest Biomass inclusive of oil seeds.

With professional management of the established stands the target will be to obtain up to 6% CJO (Crude Jatropha Oil) from the Biomass and to process 100% of the biomass to usable products, inclusive of recycling nutrients back to the JCL stands.

The intention is to establish a "template" that may guide the cultivation of JCL and other energy crops at strategic locations throughout the subtropical regions and suggest the various biomass processing technologies that can be developed in synergy to deliver a variety of value added energy commodities.

At an average yield of 40Mt of Biomass per Ha the potential is to deliver 1,200,000 Mt of Bio mass from 30,000 Ha, and to increase this each year by a further 30,000 Ha's for ten years. (Target following ten years of harvesting 12,000,000Mt's of Biomass from farming the approved marginal lands of the Kilimanjaro Region.)

National Policy in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, Ghana, Nigeria, Angola, Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Congo, DRC, Ethiopia, and others countries suggests that a complete bioenergy model is a requirement for obtaining decentralised energy objectives, liquid bio fuels for domestic and export sales and, for completing the cycle of agriculture that delivers nutrient back to the cultivation areas..

KBC has targeted to have Bio Jet Fuel as a lead to market export driver as delivery FOB at rural International Airports allows for a "Least Cost" export sale and minimum GHG emissions associated with manufacturing.

At this time we have not calculated the Carbon reduction accounts anticipated but will relate this TIC application to the national consultant office of the UNFCCC.

Given the objectives outlines above we would be delighted if Jatropha Africa experts would be in a position to offer details related to the DBOT possibilities with CHP waste to energy processes and suggest the complex Biorefinery servcies required to deliver a comprehensive range of energy products at Kilimanjaro International Airport. Indicating the costs of CHP, Biorefinery and other process technologies as well as projected feedstock requirements and operational outputs.

Additionally we are assuming advanced training requirements for Agricultural Extension, Agricultural Machinery Operations, Repair and Maintenance, Basic to professional farm management skills and of course the very wide range of skills that would be required to support the design, build, and operation of Bioenergy technologies at all levels for a complete Agriculture to Industry project.

The over all objective is to establish the opportunity to replicate a comprehensive agriculture to industry model at strategic locations, raising substantial funds to effect this from multi national resources.

Yours Sincerely

Clive Richardson

Dear Chanelle,
I like the way you are highlighting this issue, but Iam also a bit conserned that there is to much focus on the turmoil of Africa, more or less appealing to a colonized way of thinking.
And the leadership of SA, after Mandela is a disaster, just look at what happend in Zimbawe, very much because of Mbeki`s coweredness by not interfering into Mugabe`s terrorregime.
I very much wish that Mandela was 40 years younger and still in power and these horifying things would never had happend.
In 2002 I asked a question on BBC News Forum:
Next question from Norway from Otto Formo who has a question which I think you can take Grant. "How can the leadership in South Africa tolerate Mugabe tearing apart his own country and in the end disturbing the whole region politically by abusing his own people?"
I think you find the answer to that question to day while colera is attacking the struggeling peolpe of Zimbabwe and our Minister of foreign Aid is the first western minister visiting Mugabe wihin almost ten years of havock.
But to my knowledge Africa is not only Mugabe and his culpits, so please let us focus on the bright sides of life to. Africa deserves it!
Good luck!

Otto Formo

Hey Chanelle,an overly noble path you are traversing, keep up the excellent work and it is my prayer that indeed our politicians will one day take stock of the cost of their inaction as pertains to the welbeing of the populace...kudos and keep the fire burning!!
