Assessment of Sierra Leone's Energy Potential From Agricultural Wastes

A survey has been conducted to estimate the energy potential of agricultural and forestry wastes available in Sierra Leone, to provide the necessary information base for policy makers. The preliminary results which covered nine types of crop wastes, three different animal wastes and two types of forestry wastes are presented. Examples are discussed of how the different agricultural wastes can be used to supply the energy required in most of the post-harvest operations that are carried out at village level.
