Welcome to the website of Vuthisa Technologies! Since 2011 we have been acting upon our Mission statement which is to “Investigate and Disseminate New and Innovative Technologies to Developing Economies“. We help transfer new technologies and developments in the fields of Emerging Energy products and Green Technologies to rural Forestry and Farming communities. Visit our YouTube Video Playlist to see some of the projects we have managed. It is also our goal to work closely with NGO’s, Governmental- and Charitable Organizations to effectively achieve this transfer of information. Our range of products will reduce energy demand, improve quality of living and promote self-sufficiency. We also offer a Forest Mensuration / Mapping service and Timber Brokering. Please support our efforts by donating or supporting our Patreon page.
Working for Water Clearing
Between 2014 and 2016 we partnered with the Department of Environmental Affairs’ Natural Resource Management (NRM), Land User Incentive (LUI) Programme to eradicate Invasive Alien Plant Species (IAPs) and create employment as part of the Working for Water (WfW) programme. Since January 2014 we have employed 74 men, women and youth in the Kokstad area (Sisonke District Municipality) and the project was known as Vuthisa Charcoal Projects. More than 600 ha of infested areas have been rehabilitated back to pristine grasslands to date, preventing biodiversity loss.
The Energy and Environment Partnership for Southern and East Africa (EEP-S&EA) have partnered with us until July 2015 to fund 50% of the Vuthisa Biochar Initiative project costs. The EEP Programme in Southern and East Africa is jointly funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland (lead donor), The Austrian Development Agency (ADA) and the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID). For further information visit: http://eepafrica.org/. The Vuthisa Biochar Initiative aims to develop Emission Reducing Biochar & Charcoal kilns, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, create carbon sinks and develop cost effective Eco-fertilizers and soil amendment products. As a “for profit” start-up organisation we find it hard to convince Corporate donors to include us in their CSI programmes. Please support our initiatives by visiting our Donation page or buy our kiln plans. VUTHISA markets its Biochar kilns under BIOCHAR KILNS INTERNATIONAL (PTY) LTD or BKI in short.
NEW! ATTENTION SMALL SUBSISTANCE FARMERS and THOSE OF YOU LOOKING FOR A CHEAPER STARTER KILN!
We’ve added two new kiln models namely the BKI MINI and BKI MASON. These only produce 60 kg of BIOCHAR per day and the MASON is a MASONARY version of the BKI MINI kiln with metal covered in FIBRE PASTER to make it look like concrete to eliminate THEFT of metal for scrap.
Our NEW CATALOG (JUL 2019)
The CALC SHEET includes INPUT areas for each BIOCHAR kiln model (RING17, RING20, REC, BKI MINI, BKI MASON) listed on separate worksheet tabs to calculate their respective costs.
