Adoption of Agricultural Waste Charcoal Briquettes in Uganda: User Evaluation

D-Lab Scale-Ups team conducted an initial evaluation of user experience with agricultural waste briquettes produced and sold in Uganda by two enterprises, Teso Women Development Initiatives (TEWDI) in Soroti and Nakabale Integrated Development Group (NIDG) in Bugiri. The team documented fuel uses and preferences, familiarity with the product and producers, and benefits experienced by the users of the briquettes made and sold by TEWDI and NIDG. Although the composition of the briquettes and production process are similar for both enterprises, but not exact, many of the results and feedback are similar. As a result, this brief aggregates the findings.
