Upcycling Coffee for Clean Energy

Husky Energy and Technologies is a renewable energy startup that converts coffee waste into a clean energy source that acts as an off-grid electricity solution and a cleaner alternative to wood and coal.

Co-founded by Hoheyat Berhanu, the company aims to solve energy poverty, waste problems, and indoor pollution. It plans to create a sustainable environment by selling its primary products, biofuels made from compressed coffee waste, and secondary products consisting of gasifier stoves, fast-food pushcarts, and biomass electric generators.

By turning discarded coffee waste into a valuable, environmentally-friendly, and cheaper alternative, the startup is paving the way for bringing sustainable power to households and industries across Ethiopia.

Recently, Husky Energy and Technologies won the Best Business Creation Idea category in the 2022 Startupper of the Year Challenge.
