Small box turns waste into treasure for Ivory Coast farmers

Loucoumane Coulibaly of Reuters writes on a small box that is turning waste into treasure for Ivory Coast farmers.

The C3 Take
  • Waste convertors in Ivory Coast are turning mountains of agricultural waste into compost for fields or gas for cooking stoves.
  • One waste convertor box can produce 330lbs. of compost per month which farmers can use on their crops or can sell.
  • Technological innovation is the engine that will create durable climate solutions across the globe.

“The small green ‘KubeKo’ box was dreamt up by chemical engineer Noel N’guessan to make use of the 30 million tonnes of waste generated by crop production in the West African country each year and other biowaste like animal dung.”
