What we do

Innovation and Technology are at the heart of the work we do, we believe in breaking barriers, disrupting and challenging stereotypes in order to create positive change. Our solution and business model revolves around the efficient utilization of biomass waste generated by smallholder farmers and SMEs for the production of eco-friendly charcoal, through the engineered collection, sorting, and processing of Agro-waste. Agricultural waste such as palm kernel shells, coconut shells, sugarcane trash, and rice husk are processed into charcoal substitutes that have a higher energy content and a healthier, smokeless option compared to fuelwood.

Social Impact & Youth Engagement in Local communities

With Brycoal’s waste-for-cash model, small farm holders can increase their earnings by up to 18%, allowing them to acquire farming inputs, small scale equipment and improved seedlings. Furthermore, through our operations, within 5 years, we would have created 5,000 jobs as well as saved over 100,000 trees, that otherwise would have been used to make conventional charcoal. We also contribute our quota in decreasing carbon emissions from open crop waste burning in rural farming communities by sensitization and buying over the waste.

Youth empowerment and training is another area we have been big on. Our system puts in place a number of rural-focused programs that give beneficiaries access to our mentorship and upskilling projects. Our goal is to empower eligible youth with modern and employable skills- by extension reducing the level of rural unemployment in Nigeria.
