What strategies for energy access?
The Ecological Transition Agency (ADEME), the French Development Agency (AFD) and the Renewable Energies Syndicate (SER) welcome you on Thursday December 10, 2020 to try to meet the challenge of access to sustainable off-grid energy.
The event will allow you to discover projects and innovative tools, discuss various themes and share your experiences through virtual cafes, thematic sessions of solution presentations and BtoB sessions (see program here: https://accesalenergie.ademe.fr/sessions)

Our energy solutions for productive needs
Our colleague Julia Artigas Sancho will intervene in the Workshop 1 - Agriculture and Conservation at 1:30 p.m., to talk about our support to artisans for a sustainable diffusion of technologies in agro-food transformation in Africa. Indeed, the small agrifood industry often uses rudimentary, energy-intensive and polluting tools. The ProAgrovalor project aims to distribute efficient equipment (pyrolysis ovens, bio-digesters, roasters...) and adapted to the energy recovery of waste resulting from the processing of cashew, cassava and shea local food processors in these sectors.
Economic and environmental impacts
=> recycling of non-recovered biomass resulting from processing (hulls, oil cake, wastewater, etc.)
=> energy production from this biomass, re-injected into the needs of the processing unit
=> reduction of polluting fumes
=> reduction in wood consumption
=> 100% local constructions
=> co-product of the treatment: bio-carbon
