SEI helped to assess a large scale application of sugarcane-based bagasse briquettes in a tea processing facility in Kenya, using the criteria and evaluation framework developed as part of the SEI Initiative on Governing Bioeconomy Pathways.

Deutsche Welle (DW) made a short movie about the assessment, featuring Rocio Diaz Chaves, Deputy Centre Director at SEI Africa.
