Support Clean Energy Switch For Local Industry In Senegal.

Sococim Industries, the first cement producer of Senegal, reduces its carbon-intensive coal-based energy supply by renewable biomass to meet the energy needs for the clinker production.

The project replaces part of the fired coal and heavy fuel consumption by jatropha and other biomass residues (groundnuts shell) to cover up to 35% of the heat demand in the cement plant,contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Its biomass supply chain including planting, cultivating, harvesting, handling and transportation gives employment and income opportunities to rural communities, farmers and biomass dealers thus improving the social and economic situation of rural communities which are facing growing difficulties due to climate change, decrease of agricultural yields and continuous degradation of agricultural soils mainly due to overutilization, excessive grazing and drought.
