Welcome to Chardust, an alternative energy company in Nairobi, Kenya. We've developed innovative techniques to convert discarded charcoal waste into low-cost fuel briquettes.

We sell over 200 t. of charcoal briquettes per month, displacing an equivalent amount of unsustainably harvested lumpwood charcoal. At the same time as providing a cheaper energy alternative, this creates jobs, recycles waste and reduces pressure on the environment.

We also manufacture water heaters that use our briquettes, delivering savings of over 70% compared with water heated using electricity
