Other information
The denatured spirit fuel is processed from purchased, weighed stalk of sweet stalk sorghum that is grown by rural base of pyramid communities in economically marginalized, arid and semi-arid areas for food, fodder and fuel feedstock. The processing bio refineries built in the feedstock production areas create a permanent fair trade industrial market for commercial rural agricultural production. Empowers base of pyramid communities to afford the Bio Moto clean cookstoves and fuels for their own use from sorghum grain and fuel feed stock sales income. The Bio Moto Cook stove is photographed cooking sorghum grain porridge. The spirit fuel and sorghum porridge flour have both been processed from the same crop harvest.
