Summary of your enterprise

We are a mechanical engineering design company with the aim of bridging the gaps created within the local Ugandan social and industrial sectors by providing machinery and technological advances to ease the workloads, improve living standards, increase capacity and improve on value addition for a more sustainable industry all with the bias on protecting the environment through the design and fabrication of machines. Further still, we realize that, some available imported machines on the market are inadequate for some jobs in our local environment. That coupled with the fact that our local environment posses some unique tasks for which there may not be foreign machines is more reason for us to stress the importance of a local research team.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development

Earthly Energy is an innovator of new machines meant to simplify the social and economic standards of its beneficiaries. We have successfully designed machines like biogas digester, maize sheller, bucket lift water pump, agricultural multipurpose dryer which are yet to roll off from the production line. These have all passed their cost benefit analysis with an average return on investment of around one year. Also in our SME(small and medium sized enterprises) innovations have designed a mushroom growth house for the cultivation of the white button mushroom which had a record nine month return on investment.

Sustainability and future plans

Earthly energy funds its project design stages of the various technologies after which it partners with third party stake holders hoping to be share holders in the production, marketing and dessimetion of the various products. Earthly energy hopes to setup fabrication, machining and molding workshop to further ease its work in prototyping.

We can actually get rid of the gabage while generating electricity all with out spending a zilion #%$*. This project has my highest recommendations.
Just one question- can the KALOLIs be used in the digester? (If not please redesign to accomodate this vastly available bio-mass).
