CookClean manufactures 3 products branded BidiePa from its biomass fuel production facilities using saw dust and agricultural waste, namely:

Products for domestic and commercial use

  1. Carbonised charcoal briquettes (this substitutes the unsustainable traditional charcoal. These are packed in 4kgs bags and 25kgs sacks. The traditional charcoal production in its current form is alarmingly unsustainable because 6 tons of forest wood is required to produce 1 tons of charcoal. Furthermore, the production of traditional charcoal emits greater amount of methane which is considered 21 times higher than CO2 ( 1 ton of methane =21 ton CO2).
  2. Uncarbonised briquettes replaces firewood and are packed in 4 kgs bags and 25kgs sacks.
  3. The third is the industrial uncarbonised briquettes which are used to fuel biomass industrial boilers. They are sold in tons.
