Who We Are

Afrinol is a consulting company dealing with High-return, Agro- Biorefinery Project based on Sweet Sorghum, which is aligned to the government of Kenya “Vision 2030” goals of increasing enhance food security, promote renewable energies & create rural jobs.

Tana 3S Ethanol project

With the production of Food Sorghum & Soybean Grains, Ethanol from Sweet Sorghum stalks and Electricity from Waste Biomass, Tana 3S is a model for Bioenergy production and GHG reduction which does not give rise to controversy regarding food to fuel arable land conversion.

Our Values

At Afrinol Holdings Limited our values are reflected in the way we operate. Integrity and honesty represent the foundations of all operations. We also conduct ourselves with a policy of utmost good faith and as a result, we are determined to provide best solutions.

Why Sweet Sorghum

Bioethanol is either produced from sugar-based feedstock such as Sugarcane, Sugar beet or Sweet Sorghum or from Starch-based Feedstock being either grains (Corn, Wheat, Barley or Sorghum grains) or tubers (such as Cassava). As yeast cannot feed on starch, the grain/cassava feedstock production process requires the use amylase enzyme to convert the starches into fermentable sugars.

With the exception of Sweet Sorghum which yields both grain for food and stem sugars for ethanol production, the growing of energy crops for Biofuels inevitably raises land use issues regarding potential competition with food crop production and the diverting of food crops for industrial use.

Project Time Line

During the course of 2016, the first 2.500 hectares will be cleaned and prepared for the first Sweet Sorghum plantation in April 2017. 2.500 hectares plantation will be added in 2017, 2018 and 2019 to reach a total crop acreage of 10.000 hectares by 2019.

The Syrup production units capacity will be expanded to meet the volume of Sweet Sorghum Stalk production. The ethanol plant start-up is planned for June 1st 2017. Civil works of the ethanol plant will start in July 2017. EPC contracts need to be signed in October 2017.
