1. Bamboo plantation project
Our plantations are grown from deforested lands leased from the Forestry Commission of Ghana.
The objective of this project is to conserve biodiversity, mitigate climate change, restore deforested lands, reduce erosion, and most importantly, generate carbon credits through bamboo cultivation.
The project focuses on improving the issue of deforestation and climate change in the country
Aligned with the commitment to our objectives, the Company has a goal of developing up to 5,000 hectares of bamboo plantations in deforested forests across Ghana. We are currently cultivating bamboo in 2 compartments situated at Buofoum Forest reserve in the Kumawu Forest district and in the Tinte Bepo Forest reserve in the Mankranso Forest district
The project will have a positive environmental impact and socio-economic impact. Our project is expected to provide rural communities with a better standard of living in light of SDG goals 1,4,5 and 13 i.e., (poverty alleviation, quality education, gender equality and climate action).
SDG 1: poverty alleviation
The project will generate alternative livelihood options through training, inclusion, and employment for local communities.
SDG 4: quality education
The project will provide education by educating the importance of climate change and sustainable management of land.
SDG 5: gender equality
The project has a focus on targeting women for training in an effort to bridge the gender gap.
SDG 15: life on land
Targeting deforested areas within the forest reserves for reforestation will decrease soil erosion. Since bamboo is one of the fastest with a high renewability, it makes it suitable as a tool for carbon sequestration. The planned reforestation is expected to provide carbon sequestration for over 20 years creating cleaner air and opportunities for rural development.
2.Briquette manufacturing plant
The KG Biomass Supply’s briquette manufacturing project will be located strategically at the Oti light industrial area near Sokoban Wood Village in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. This site sits at a locus point of resources being at the proximity of Kwamoka Energy,an affiliate of KGBS and our anchor client for our briquettes. It is also about 3 kilometers from the Sokoban wood village (our main source of fuel stock supply)
The plant will be using the unutilized wood and agricultural residues which are usually burnt or sent to landfills.

1. [KG Biomass shares the global concern about climate change and our planet. With this issue at the forefront of our concerns, significant steps to manage greenhouse gas emissions have been put into place. We are committed to producing energy in the most environmentally and economically sustainable manner, by evaluating and adapting our processes to reduce emissions and waste, conserve energy and natural resources and reduce the potential for environmental impacts from our activities and operations]. Utilizing wastes for briquettes will help combat the Environmental and health hazards due to excess unutilized waste that are burnt or sent to landfills and also help mitigate climate change.
2. Beyond the environmental and energy benefits, the project right from its implementation to commissioning and beyond will stimulate a micro economy and contribute to the socio economic development for women and the youth in the community and the region as a whole.
3. The government shall benefit through tax revenues from the company and the peripheral businesses its operations will induce.
4. As part of an agreed technical partnership with the Kumasi Technical Institute , the project will facilitate KTI’s WORKPLACE EXPERIENCE PROGRAM through practical research work by students, strengthen faculty, curricula and student development as a whole. This partnership is very paramount to us because we believe that educating these students benefits not just them and the Institute but the company as a whole, since tomorrow’s KGBS engineers and technicians are today’s students.]
