Canadian enterprise invests in biodiesel production in RDC
15 September 2010
Carbon2Green, a Canadian enterprise specializing in the development of clean energies, has just announced its intention to develop its African division, installed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
In a press release published on 8 September, it says that it wants to concentrate on the revenue stream generated by biodiesel.
It will finance a project enabling it, by the end of this year, to take on more than 300 staff and to plant nearly 35 million trees in the Bandundu region.
Carbon2Green believes this will allow it to produce about 24 million litres of biodiesel per year by 2013.
A delegation from the African Development Bank is currently attending the World Energy Congress, which is being held from 12 to 16 September 2010 in Montreal, Canada.
During the Congress, the ADB will stress the importance of developing clean energies in order to face up to the threats posed to the continent by climate change, reports the Angola Presse agency.
