KVTC in collaboration with PFP launches a biomass challenge
The Kilombero Valley Teak Company (KVTC), in collaboration with PFP, is launching a biomass challenge for all regional operators. KVTC operates a forest plantation and sawmill in the Ulanga District (Morogoro) and supplies roundlogs to an additional four sawmills in the area. All sawmills are generating significant amounts of unutilized by-products from their milling operations and none of the mills has been able to find commercially viable use for its sawmill residues.
KVTC believes that finding solutions to sawmill residues can offer some solution to Tanzania’s energy needs and assist in reducing deforestation whilst at the same time offer economic opportunities for the company to monetize its waste products. The challenge runs until 2018, when the submitted proposals will be evaluated by a team of KVTC and PFP experts. More details can be found in: http://kvtc-tz.com/the-kvtc-biomass-challenge
