Our Sustainability Story

A bioenergy venture, CleanCookAfrica is the tradename (DBA) of Southline Coast Ltd. with a mission to promote and distribute clean cooking alternatives at affordable prices, as well as, produce the biofuel necessary for their use. The company was organized to fill the gap for ethanol supply chains for clean cooking in West Africa by launching an ethanol/stove distribution business in Ghana comprising the production of fuel ethanol and the manufacture/assembly of low-cost CLEANCOOK stoves to serve the local and regional West Africa market of 380 million.

Sustainable Agriculture

A feedstock processing plant at the center that adds value to locally grown cassava, producing food, animal feed, and ethanol cooking fuel. A Southline Coast owned and managed nucleus farm of 8,000 Acres providing a minimum baseload of cassava to cushion any out-grower disruptions. Guaranteed feedstock purchase agreements to approved local out-growers as well as the supply of planting materials and micro-finance. This will deliver a long-term sustainable income to the community and the confidence to invest in and expand their farms.

Food

The number one priority is to ensure that adequate cassava crop is grown for food and for ethanol processing, thus avoiding food insecurity. Improved agricultural practices will result in increased productivity per unit of land. This will strengthen the existing production of cassava and allow continued household consumption. Also, locally producing starch and from cassava will prevent externalization of foreign exchange and allow participation in the export market.

Ethanol Cooking Fuel

Ethanol is a renewable clean liquid biofuel produced via a fermentation and distillation process from cassava flour. Cassava is converted into sugar and the sugar is fermented to cooking grade fuel for use in the home.

The Problem

Air pollution from traditional cooking fuels and stoves.

Evidence from the most recent World Health Organization survey on the global burden of disease shows that nearly 600,000 Africans (over 28,000 in Ghana) die annually and millions more suffer from chronic illnesses caused by air pollution from inefficient and dangerous traditional cooking fuels and stoves. 70% of households in Ghana depend on firewood or charcoal as their primary energy source for cooking, exposing them to household air pollution and causing high rates of deforestation.

Over 90% of the rural population in Ghana depends on firewood or charcoal to meet their cooking needs with a large percentage of families spending significant portions of their income on charcoal

Charcoal is one of the major agents of deforestation and is also a form of energy waste. At the time of its production, 80% of the energy contained in the wood is lost to the atmosphere. The smoke and particulate emissions are also particularly dangerous for the environment.

The use of kerosene and charcoal for cooking has negative consequences for health and the environment. Inhaling carbon monoxide acts on the respiratory system, the immune system, and on the heart of exposed people. It is also one of the main causes of the high mortality rates in Ghana and Sub-Sahara Africa.
