Clean alternative solutions to the inefficient cooking-fuel used in Malian kitchens
A key task in ensuring sustainable development lies in an adequate management in the supply system of resources through sustainable circular economy, ideally at local level. Collaborations to address the local problems and to adapt the technologies to local needs present a unique opportunity to bridge the research results with the implementation through education, capacity building and vocational trainings. Thus, overall aim of this project is subcategorized into research, training, education and networking.
Mali, one of the least developed countries, uses traditional firewood for cooking. The project’s specific scientific objective is to contribute towards clean cooking to ensure the sustainable livelihood of people in Mali. While doing so, the different methodological approaches such as sustainable circular economy, efficient water use and agricultural productivity will be applied to the case study area in Katibougou, Mali.
Pilot plants for these appropriate technologies will be installed and tested, which include: improved cook stove, briquetting machine, biogas plant, solar water pump and electric cooking unit.
Postgraduate education and training
Six learning units will be developed related to the project’s theme including the results of the research activities within this project.
The project’s objective is to contribute to clean cooking to ensure the sustainable livelihood of people in Mali.
