SWEDO Innovations Limited

Manufacturing biofire combs for commercial cooking.


We are a provider of green energy alternatives, turning to fecal sludge and organic material as sustainable, renewable energy sources to create clean energy. In addition to addressing the problem of waste management, this offers a sustainable source of energy for use in commercial cooking. Our biofire combs are created using a procedure that involves the collection of organic and agricultural waste, carbonization, pressing, and compacting. They have a long burning time of 6 hours. These biofire combs are made to burn very cleanly with little smoke or other pollutants. We can lessen our reliance on fossil fuels and help create a more sustainable and environmentally friendly future by using organic waste and fecal matter. Furthermore, the way we produce ensures that no precious resources are used in the production of waste, as we carefully collect and utilize by-products that would otherwise be discarded.
