Ubabio Biomass Energy Solutions

We use waste to fuel Africa, and provide climate-smart solutions.


We utilize locally available resources to create an innovative technology that recycle organic wastes into biomass energy, in form of green biomass briquettes. The briquettes are manufactured from organic garbage and provide a more ecological alternative to traditional charcoal or wood fuel which directly contributes to deforestation. Our product is sustainable, affordable, reliable, and long lasting, clean cooking fuel.

By replacing wood-based charcoal with sustainable biomass briquettes we help to improve the livelihoods of millions of people, increase natural carbon sequestration and support the local communities’ ability to respond to the challenges of climate change, as well as improve environmental sanitation.
