90 Solvatten units have now reached Uganda. They will be used in a pilot study, funded by the French embassy in Kampala and the international pharmaceutical company Roche. In the first few months data will be collected to establish the fuel wood savings and the carbon emission reductions with Solvatten, as well as social impact. In time the units will become part of a project for voluntary carbon offsetting.
The project was initiated by Solvatten AB and U&We and now also involves the project developer myclimate as well as a partner called Ecotrust in Uganda. Both Solvatten AB and U&We are very excited about this new high quality offsetting option that has so many benefits for the climate, environment and local communities.
