Bold Idea 

Capture carbon dioxide emissions for the energy and industrial sectors in Kenya by converting CO2 to value-added, revenue generating products.

Summary 

Carbofix East-Africa Ltd. works to improve air quality and control of unmitigated CO2 emissions from the energy and industrial sectors in Kenya and East Africa by capturing CO2, using low-cost inputs, and converting it to value-added products like glass, baking soda, and ethanol for extra revenue besides cashing in on the resultant carbon credits from the emissions reductions. Carbofix East-Africa Ltd. strives to be the best one-stop-shop partner in Africa on the full carbon capture, use, or storage value chain to help clients de-carbonize emissions for a reduced carbon footprint across the African continent.
