Proafin General Partners are a developer and advisors of small to large-scale renewable energy projects, biofuels projects and agriculture development projects in Africa. Our focus is on bioenergy and biofuel projects that produce low-carbon transportation fuels and electricity from sustainable biomass feedstock including sugarcane, cassava, maize and jatropha. The economic growth and prosperity of Africa is directly associated with energy availability, and today the majority of energy is imported, which dry out a country’s valuable foreign currency reserves. It is our strategy to work with our local African governments and private companies to utilise their abundant natural resources to produce renewable energy through sustainable agriculture development.
