Green Renaissance

Published on June 2, 2014 um 06:28

Summary of your idea

The idea of the Green Renaissance is to make fuel briquettes for household cooking from agricultural wastes. Every year there is a huge production of sugarcane, banana in all over Bangladesh which produces sugarcane stem, banana leaves, pseudo stem and paper wastes .Our vision is to procure fuel briquettes from wastes as an alternative fuel. The remaining reserves of fuels are lowering and the price is high. As there is a high demand for alternative fuel, we hope to market these items, resolve the barrier in the economic solvency of the farmers and contribute highly to our national economy.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Most of the rural people of Bangladesh are below poverty line and lead a very miserable life. The chance of success in this business is also high as the total development of Bangladesh is agricultural oriented. This is a unique integration of women empowerment, youth development, alternative solution of fuel crises, educational development, agricultural development and solution to deforestation and huge agricultural waste. Fuel briquettes being eco-friendly makes our idea a more acceptable one.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

First of all we will convince a section of farmers to supply raw materials at a reasonable price. Then we will select and train the unemployed, specifically village women about how to make fuel briquettes. In the meantime we will have our shops to be located in major areas. We also go through our various advertisement including road show, sustainability analysis and discussion on social impact of women through this business and start convincing the people of the country. After making these fuel briquettes our supply chain team will deliver the briquettes as requested by the customer.
