The Project

Project Overview

This initiative, embarked upon in the rich landscapes of Ghana, unveils a comprehensive approach to revolutionize the charcoal production sector. By integrating advanced large kiln facilities and micro gasifier stoves, the project holds the promise of significantly reducing emissions while fostering sustainable charcoal production practices. The underpinning objective is to set up efficient charcoal production facilities, with a scale of up to 160,000 tons per annum, fueled by renewable biomass, and to distribute Top-Lit Up Draft (TLUD) Micro Gasifier stoves to local households.


Large-Scale Charcoal Production

The establishment of modern large kiln facilities encapsulates the essence of sustainable charcoal production. By contracting with bamboo plantation developers in Ghana, and promoting the establishment of woodlots, a continual source of renewable biomass fuel is ensured.

The emission reduction potential is palpable, with an estimated reduction of 978,008 tCO2eq per year, culminating to a cumulative total of 5,868,048 tCO2eq by 2030.

Micro Gasifier Stove Distribution

The distribution of TLUD Micro Gasifier stoves to local households marks a significant stride towards self-sustained charcoal production. Facilitating the collection of charcoal generated as a byproduct, this component not only serves the immediate needs of households but also contributes to the broader objective of emission reduction—estimated at 1,232,220 tCO2eq per year, with a cumulative total of 7,393,320 tCO2eq by 2030.

Alignment with National and Global Objectives

The initiative has received a Letter of Intent (LOI) from host country authorities, affirming alignment with Ghana's Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) priorities.

Furthermore, this project is heralded as an Internationally Transferred Mitigation Outcome (ITMOs) initiative, aimed at securing ITMOs authorized for use as Korean NDC.

Sectoral Focus and Policy Actions

  • Sector: Energy

  • Policy Actions: A robust promotion of sustainable charcoal production is envisaged, encompassing the inclusion of youth and women entrepreneurs.

  • NDC Actions: The promotion of innovative and efficient kilns, alongside the support for the establishment of woodlots, forms the crux of actions aligned with the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).

  • POA Index: PO40, PO41

  • Status: Conditional NDC


The African Sustainable Charcoal Initiative in Ghana is more than a project; it’s a testament to what robust planning paired with sustainable practices can achieve. The dual approach—of setting up large-scale efficient charcoal production facilities and disseminating micro gasifier stoves—stands as a formidable strategy to not only reduce emissions significantly but also to nurture a culture of sustainable charcoal production and usage, aligning seamlessly with both local and global sustainability objectives.
