Human waste becomes fuel for Kenya’s poor

Sharing is Caring

Nakuru (Kenya), Aug 08 (ANI): In a unique initiative, a company in Kenya is manufacturing briquettes from human waste and sawdust collected around Nakuru. These workers in Nakuru are emptying a truck load of human faeces onto drying beds. The waste is the main material used at this processing site to make these briquettes which locals use to cook food. It’s left out to dry, then treated in a kiln and carbonised with sawdust at 300 degrees Celsius, a process which removes harmful pathogens and, of course, the foul smell. This local trader uses the briquettes to make snacks for sale.
