Uganda’s Khainza Energy wins Shs18.8m innovation prize

Khainza, which was recently a finalist for Africa Prize by Royal Academy for Engineering, is an innovative circular economy business that obtains organic waste from smallholder farms and local households for processing and refinement into high-purity methane.

The energy company distributes cooking appliances and affordable, recyclable biogas cylinders locally, incorporating local women, youth, and farmers along its value chain and distribution channels.

Khainza also provides low-cost cooking fuel solutions to low-income Ugandans and creates jobs for a multitude of local partners, suppliers, employees, and customers.
