Over 70% of urban Kenyan households rely on charcoal fuel for cooking with adverse effects on the country’s forest cover and the health of its users. Similarly, alternative kerosene and Liquefied Petroleum Gas fuels are plagued by shortages and oppressive pricing with no sustainable solutions foreseeable. We are harnessing renewable biogas energy to deliver low and middle income urban households from these adversities while transmitting continual social and environmental value through our fuel’s renewability, affordability and efficiency. Exygen’s business model comprises simple technical processes that maximize the usability of raw biogas by converting it to high quality Liquefied Biogas (LBG), branded SafiGas, ready for distribution and sale to our vast market through commercial gas cylinders. Each step in our business model delivers unique value to the stakeholders involved, culminating in a venture model that will thrive in Kenya and beyond borders; revolutionizing the social and environmental landscape.
