Eco Fuels Kenya expanding with 500ha croton plantation

December 29, 2016 |

In Kenya, Eco Fuels Kenya is expanding production of croton nut for biodiesel production and other byproducts such as animal feed and briquettes with the introduction of a 500ha plantation. So far the company has relied on supplies from farmers collecting seeds from existing tress, processing up to 1,000 metric tons of seeds this year, double that of 2015. But to continue growing, the plantation is required. The company also plans to build up to five facilities around the country and eventually expand into Tanzania.
