RecyCoal is a non-profit project which was founded in 2016 by a group of students from the RWTH Aachen University. The group came together as part of the Enactus Aachen e.V., a social-entrepreneurial non-profit initiative dedicated to creating better living standards for people in need. The organization is based on the simple principle “helping people help themselves” to realize a sustainable development.Therefore, a three-stage concept has been developed: First, the team members will lead introductory workshops that convey knowledge about the required equipment as well as the assembly of the necessary components. In addition, farmers will receive a comprehensive manual. Secondly, the team members will support them during the application to the final production of the RecyCoal Briquettes. Thirdly, RecyCoal expects that trained farmers will spread the idea in accordance to the “Teach-the-Teacher”- principle.
