Description Bagazo is a for-profit organization that creates clean-burning cooking fuels from agricultural waste products for people in developing countries. Bagazo targets the 2.4 billion people worldwide who currently use dung, biomass, or wood-based products as their primary source for cooking fuels. In collaboration with the MIT Development Lab, Bagazo developed a unique process to create charcoal from the byproducts of sugar-cane processing and corn cobs. The resulting charcoal is safer to use, cheaper to produce, and more environment-friendly than existing biomass-based fuels. Bagazo will commercialize its charcoal initially in Haiti.
