Tseai Energy Unlimited, a developer of small-scale agricultural processing plants that is capable of producing biofuel, has sent its team of experts to Sierra Leone for establishing its first pilot program.
Agricultural processing plants are installed by Tseai Energy Unlimited that utilizes ample local crops, provides employment to local farmers and produces commercial goods in underdeveloped communities. Biomass digesters are added to the processing plants through which discarded agricultural waste is converted into biogas. Electricity generated by using this biogas is supplied to local schools.
The proposed pilot plant in Sierra Leone will process palm fruit into palm oil. While processing, waste is generated, which is converted into biogas. This biogas is used to generate electricity. The company was founded by Trevor Young in 2009. The team from the company will be acquiring land in town of Mile 18, where the plant is proposed to be built, and have meetings with various stakeholders such as farmers, schools, contractors for constructing the plant, Ministry of Agriculture and Food Safety and Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports.
