Household needs, especially for cooking, lead families in Benin to use wood cut from the forest. This action contributes to deforestation and has a negative impact on the environment. To counter this human action, Roland ADJOVI got the idea of transforming dead leaves from trees, along with other elements such as agricultural residues into an ecological charcoal named “ECO SIKA”. In addition to being economical, the use of this charcoal in the kitchen has less impact on health and considerably helps to maintain the quality of kitchen utensils. The ashes from the combustion of charcoal are used as fertilizers for the soil and also used in the composition of cosmetic products.
