Charcoal has been utilized in Kenya for many years. However, the industry has faced ups and downs with a ban to production and restrictions in use. As one of the steps towards streamlining this industry, KFS supported by UNDP is seeking to assess available technologies, especially within Kenya, that have been in use and evaluate their efficiency, replicability and management with regard to requirements of the new charcoal rules. The study takes the form of desk work and field work. The study report also indicates some of the areas where the technology has been in use as a case study.
