In Bukavu, South Kivu, a group of seven youths has created 'Briquette du Kivu,' a company that transforms 200 kilos of biodegradable household and other organic waste into ecological briquettes weekly. The initiative, started four months ago, aims to reduce deforestation and improve sanitation. The process involves drying, carbonizing, pressing the raw material, and then sun-drying the briquettes for 5 to 7 days. Gisele Furaha, a local resident, attests to the briquettes' efficiency, noting that just ten are enough to cook a vegetable rice dish for five people.
