Kiama, Director, Wangari Maathai Institute, PhD and MSc. students, WMI, Dr. Mary Njenga and the ICRAF team and some members of the Makomboki Tea Factory group photo after touring the factory and the Briquette Energy Project.
KTDA Makomboki Tea Factory was commissioned on 21st September, 1981. The factory is located in Kigumo District of Muranga County on the slopes of the Aberdare Ranges in Central Kenya about 90kms from the capital City Nairobi and next to the biggest man made Dam in Kenya that supplies water to the capital City of Nairobi. The Makomboki briquette energy pilot project aims at piloting the use of more sustainable energy at the factory to test the usage efficiency and effectiveness of the fuel usage and use the results to roll out and scale up similar projects to other tea factories, farmers and other users.
