Tea Processing

Highlights: The requirement for wood fuel for tea processing is placing enormous pressure on national forest resources. Each of the 100 odd factories consumes an average of 7, 000 tonnes of firewood a year, translating into a nationally significant 200. 000 ha of forest cover annually. Environmental degradation due to the combined effects of depleted forest cover and the burning of over 9 million litres of Fuel Oil / year (at a cost 8-10 times higher than firewood) has led to localized climate changes in the tea growing areas of Central Kenya.
