VCILU 1

Mr. Andreas Bischofberger, General Manager of the Lukala Cement Factory visited the elephant grass plantation project in Lukala to see for himself how the partnership with HPP-Congo develops on the ground. The objective of the partnership between CILU and HPP-Congo is to produce green energy in order to contribute to the reduction of fossil coal consumption and the pollution caused by burning coal. This strategy is in line with Article 6 of the Paris Climate Agreement, according to which the parties can decide to cooperate voluntarily to implement their nationally determined contributions (NDCs).

VCILU 2

The visit of the General Manager took place to both see the progress made and to take stock of the challenges encountered on the ground.

Andreas Bischofberger visited the 100 hectares planted with elephant grass, and was satisfied with the project achievements thus far and the good collaboration with HPP-Congo, and expressed confidence that the germination would produce a good harvest. Finally, he would look into solutions of improvement for matters encountered in the field by the team.

For your information, the partnership between CILU and HPP-Congo consists of the production of green energy that will gradually replace a part of the energy produced by fossil fuel. It is made possible by initially planting 100 hectares of elephant grass. If successful the project can be expanded using more of the unused areas around the cement plant.

VCILU 3

HPP-Congo hopes that the CILU/HPP-Congo partnership will continue to produce positive social, economic and environmental impact.  As the activities on the ground progress, the production of green energy will become a reality. In addition, the community has welcomed the project because it has provided income to some 200 motivated workers in the field and provided technical training on how to plant and maintain the elephant grass
