NetZero's first full-scale site is located in Nkongsamba, in the Littoral region of Cameroon.
It sits next to Synergie Nord Sud (SNS), Cameroon's largest coffee-processing plant, who's owner is one of NetZero's co-founders. This ideal location gives NetZero a direct access to coffee husks, an abundant waste product of coffee transformation. It also gives NetZero a one-of-a-kind platform to distribute the biochar to small coffee growers that supply SNS.
Its production capacity is around 1,500 tonnes of biochar per year.
In 2022, we will build two new sites in Minas Gerais (Brazil) to prove the replicability and scalability of our model. These sites will feature the second generation of production process, with significant improvements in productivity, reliability, and safety of operations.
