Swiss Contribution

Caritas Switzerland has been active in Haiti for more than 30 years. Good local networking, as well as Caritas’s proven expertise in project management, development and implementation of locally adapted business models form an important basis for this project. Lessons learned from the REPIC’s “Pyrolysis Cooker, Haiti” project are channeled directly into this project. 


The overall project is broadly developed and provides comprehensive solutions for the reduction of deforestation, reforestation, the use of organic waste and the improvement of agricultural soils through the use of biochar. A key element for REPIC is the establishment of a profitable production and sales chain for pyrolysis boilers and biomass pellets. An important component is the development and implementation of a locally adapted business model.

The project is co-financed by the European Union.
