About US

EFK Eco Fuels Kenya is an innovative social enterprise committed to sustainable agribusiness development through the production of high value, renewable energy, and organic agricultural outputs.
In 2012, the EFK team began working on optimizing a sustainable supply chain and perfecting a zero-waste manufacturing process that transform croton nuts into sustainable energy and agriculture products.

  • EFK’s business model incorporates a holistic approach that has many benefits in the agricultural value-chain through an income motivated environmental conservation concept.
  • The company sources croton nuts from local communities through a proprietary collection network. The Croton nut collectors : over 6000 individuals, form the base of the pyramid – 85% of whom are women and unemployed youths who earn additional income from collecting quality
    croton nuts.
  • Croton Megalocarpus trees being the source of our raw
    material, EFK encourages the conservation of the existing croton trees and implementation of Agroforestry practices. Therefore as an environmental steward we are greatly contributing towards the reduction of carbon emmisions and Kenya’s target of 10% forest cover by 2022.

 

In 2015, EFK moved from proof-of-concept into a growth stage. This has included scaling up croton nut production as well as establishing farmer development programs to further strengthen EFK’s commitment to poverty
alleviation and environmental sustainably in our local rural communities that make up our supply chain..
