Africa is a major provider of fossil fuels however the global move to adopt carbon neutral fuels to assist climate change actions also provides Southern Africa with the opportunity to leverage its large scale biomass feedstocks and industrial production capacity to develop and deploy bioenergy technologies in the key biofuels, bio-power and renewable sectors.
