LeJan Energy Ltd.
In 2018 we made an equity investment in LeJan Energy which produces and sells biomass briquettes to industrial and large institutional end-users in Kenya. LeJan Energy was originally established in 2014. Following our investment, the company upgraded their worksite and expanded production operations over tenfold.
LeJan Energy is a renewable energy company in the cyclic economy converting biomass waste into low-cost fuel briquettes. The company’s approach is to disrupt the traditional energy landscape by re-using what people have discarded since time immemorial. As a cheaper, “drop-in” replacement for traditional fuels such as firewood and coal, carbon-neutral biomass briquettes provide a sustainable source of clean-burning energy.
Through its operations, the company creates jobs, recycles waste, saves trees, and reduces pressure on the environment. The company is based in Mai Mahiu, Nakuru County, Kenya.
