The N$ 20 million Belgian-owned Green Charcoal Namibia factory currently under construction in Arandis in the Erongo Region, is expected to create employment for 60 locals and is expected to be able to process and package over 30 000 tonnes of Forest Stewardship Council approved charcoal per year and an additional 8000 briquettes from its by-products. We spoke to Jean-Daniel Goblet, one of the directors of the commpany that is working closely with about 30 farmers across the country to produce charcoal for the factory, to find out more about how this will benefit the town.
