This project takes a step further the program of agro-industrial’s development of the cashew nut chain, supported by the European Union since 1997. It aims at increasing local value addition through transformation of the product, and at improving competitiveness in order to increase and diversify exportation. Competitiveness’ improvement requires valorization of by-products, especially because transformation consumes a lot of energy.
To facilitate the setting up of cashew nut transformation units, which are foreseen as expected results under the program co-financed by the European Commission, especially through increasing energetic effectiveness thanks to the creative use of discarded by-products resulting from the transformation .
To increase benefits from the sale of the cachew nut almond (after shelling) by reducing the overall costs of the process of transformation.
To promote domestically accessible energy for villager in the northern Ivory Coast, by transforming unused by-products of the cashew nut chain.
To promote diversification of income sources along the cashew nut chain, by selling burning material available locally.
Projects implementation and expected results:
Targets and Indicators of success
3 transformation units equipped with energy efficient ovens, using the agglo bricks
Production of bricks made of cashew nut shells for the softening process of the cachew nut shell and the nuts drying process
A better value added that will translate in :
