  • Can "green charcoal" help save the trees?, 20 April 2009 by IRIN: "An environmental NGO in northern Senegal is about to go to market with 'green charcoal' – a household fuel produced from agricultural waste materials to replace wood and charcoal in cooking stoves."
    • "The 'green charcoal' is produced by compressing agricultural waste, like the invasive typha weed, into briquets and then carbonising them using a machine. The product has the look and feel of traditional charcoal and burns similarly."
    • "'The technology is efficient, effective and economical because we can produce a substitute for charcoal at half the price,' Guy Reinaud, director of Pro Natura International, the French NGO that has partnered with the Senegalese government on the green charcoal project."
    • "ProNatura will soon start a project in Mali, transforming cotton stems into green charcoal, and plans similar projects in Niger, Madagascar, China, India and Brazil."[3]
