BIOSORRA Launched The Biggest Biochar-Producing Plant In East Africa - Carbon Herald

BIOSORRA, a leading carbon removal startup has launched the biggest biochar-producing plant in East Africa to provide its high quality biochar to Kenya Nut Company, a multinational agribusiness firm growing a variety of products.

According to Mr. Vincent Koloki, the Chief Financial Officer at Kenya Nut Company, the move symbolizes the companies’ long-term relationship with a unique proposition of providing carbon removal innovation to promote sustainable agriculture for farmers.

“I am optimistic that this partnership is a win-win for BIOSORRA and Kenya Nut in both the agriculture and the sustainability space,” said Koloki in his address during the launch of the plant at Thika in Kiambu County, Kenya on Friday last week- November 3rd, 2023.

Thus, the companies have become the first scalable biochar alliance in the East Africa region with a shared mission on sustainability, agriculture, and people.

“I’m grateful for the support I have received from the Kenya Nut Company management about this partnership and I’m very optimistic that the projects will grow massively to not only help us but also the smallholder farmers. I believe BIOSORRA Biochar Bora will make a major breakthrough in the country and also globally,” said Jane Ndirangu, the group Sustainability Manager at Kenya Nut Company.

BIOSORRA develops its own patented pyrolysis technology, bringing the first-of-its-kind quality biochar production following intense scientific and innovation work. That comes after the company realized the lack of sustainable farming solutions at scale in Kenya and in Global South countries that have worsened due to the huge dependence on synthetic solutions that are currently imported.

The startup was also part of the XPRIZE Competition and back in 2021 was named one of the 23 winners in the $5 million XPRIZE Carbon Removal Student competition.
