Environment and Forestry Cabinet Secretary Keriako Tobiko has said there is need to give incentives to investors producing clean energy.

The CS has said that production of clean energy solutions will provide alternative clean energy that will reduce carbon emissions and deforestation.

Speaking today when he met members of the Green Mazingira Group which are producing briquettes from solid waste and water hyacinth, Mr. Tobiko said that production of clean energy will provide solution to climate change mitigation, by reducing deforestation, and provide practical management of solid waste in the country.

He said that there is need for policy regulations to order to increase the number of investors in the sector.

He said that production of wood free briquettes reduces overall garbage, methane emissions and encourages waste management adding that briquettes are cheaper than fire wood and charcoal.

CS Tobiko said that such ventures as the production of briquettes from solid wastes will be one sure way of turning wastes into treasure.

He said that there is need for having in place policies and guidelines on the production and sale of briquettes.

He said that the use of solid waste can replace fossil fuels, charcoal and natural firewood which are used in 80 percent of Kenyan households.

He urged the briquette producers to aggressively market their products which have a huge market and expressed confidence that the use of alternative source of clean energy is what will help in conserving our forests.

Green Pavers- the organization which is producing the briquettes, Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Aghan Oscar urged the government to lift the ban on transportation of the charcoal briquettes to enable them sale the products.
