Biomass Feedstock aims to sell its sustainably mass-produced woodchips to African and European markets. In doing so, it will also provide significant ecological and economic benefits to the host country.
Our company will differ from other producers because we will be developing and controlling our own (dedicated) feedstock cultivation.
The Ghana / Ivory Coast project is to be the first of a series of similar projects throughout West Africa, creating similar benefits and producing green woodchips for which demand is growing rampantly throughout the world.
The first phase of the project will be the establishment of a so-called microplot in Ghana (Ankasa Area), where we will test the growth rate and caloric values of our tree (Paulownia elongata) on a 10-acre area. These results will be validated by the University of Gent who will perform the role of independent academic partner in the project.
Based on the results of this test phase we will upscale our project thereafter towards approximately 10,000 acres.
