Welcome to HGI, an alternative energy company in Arusha, Tanzania. We’ve developed innovative techniques to convert discarded agri waste into low-cost fuel briquettes. For each tonne of charcoal briquettes sold, we displace an equivalent amount of regular lump wood charcoal and firewood. At the same time as providing a cheaper and longer-burning energy alternative, this creates jobs, recycles waste and reduces deforestation We also manufacture energy saving stoves for schools and institutions, ovens and water heaters that use our briquettes, delivering savings of over 70% compared with water heated electricity and 35% compared stoves ordinary firewood.
Reducing deforestation –Every ton of our briquette saves an average 25 tress.
Lower health risks- our briquette nearly smokeless, reducing the risk of respiratory illnesses due to indoor air pollution such as pneumonia, lung cancer, strokes, and heart disease.
Cost savings- Customers save an average of 35% compared to firewood and 50% compared to charcoal!
